World Record Attempt

ARC Prize is a $1,000,000+ public competition to beat and open source a solution to the ARC-AGI benchmark held on Kaggle. The competition is hosted by Mike Knoop, Co-Founder of Zapier and François Chollet, Creator of ARC-AGI and Keras and presented by Lab42 and Infinite Monkey.

 

Most AI benchmarks measure skill. But skill is not intelligence. General intelligence is the ability to efficiently acquire new skills. Chollet's unbeaten 2019 Abstraction and Reasoning Corpus for Artificial General Intelligence (ARC-AGI) is the only formal benchmark of AGI.

 

It's easy for humans, but hard for AI.

Change the Course of AI

Progress toward artificial general intelligence (AGI) has stalled. LLMs are trained on unimaginably vast amounts of data, yet they remain unable to adapt to simple problems they haven't been trained on, or make novel inventions, no matter how basic.

 

Strong market incentives have pushed frontier AI research to go closed source. Research attention and resources are being pulled toward a dead end. You can change that: visit arcprize.org.

2024 Top Score Pirzes

Awarded to the highest-scoring submissions during the 2024 competition:

1st: $25’000

2nd: $10’000

3rd: $5’000

4th: $5’000

5th: $5’000

2024 Paper Award

Awarded to the submitted paper that best advances our understanding of how to achieve strong performance on ARC-AGI according the Paper Award Rubric.

1st: $45’000

2nd: $5’000

Grand Prize: $500'000

Awarded to the top teams (up to 5) which score at least 85% (average human ARC-AGI score) during an annual competition period. If not won, the Grand Prize will continue during the next annual competition.

Evaluation Process

The judging process is superintended by a distinguished jury made up of members from the Swiss AI Award Committee, ETH Zurich, and the Zurich University of Applied Sciences. Submissions is open now. Please read the Submission Rules in the ARCathon Guide to ensure your code can be reviewed by the jury. Teams can submit three algorithms per calendar week in a Docker container, with a deadline of 23:59 CET on December 1, 2023.
