The Seeker is looking for novel ideas for a formulation additive, or additives, that stabilises the color of one of its formulated materials, preventing discoloration under exposure to sunlight and humidity.
This is a Reduction-to-Practice Challenge that requires submission of written documentation from the Solver. The Seeker will perform experimental validation of proposed solutions in order to determine the award.
The Challenge to Solvers is to propose a novel method to measure leg edema. A method that is performed in an easy way compatible with daily physician practice during the evaluation of patients suffering from venous disease, and particularly those with leg heaviness symptoms.
This Theoretical Challenge requires only a written proposal.
The Seeker, through this challenge, is looking for trial solutions in order to define new experimental business models aimed at identifying a partner that can develop a web-based or smartphone application that provides real-time natural language cognitive and predictive virtual assistance to help customers in pre-trip (planning, purchase), on trip (e.g. in case of disruption to optimize the planned journeys) and post-trip (e.g. suggestion of customized ancillary services), in order to support integrated (multimodal) journey planning.
This is an electronic Request-for-Partners (eRFP) Challenge; the Solver will only need to submit a written proposal to be evaluated by the Seeker with the goal of establishing a collaborative partnership.
Braskem is challenging Solvers to improve the state-of-the-art of 3D printing speed using polyolefins, whilst maintaining a high standard of product quality, when compared to the same part made by traditional manufacturing.
This is a Reduction-to-Practice Challenge that requires written documentation, experimental proof-of-concept data, and sample delivery.
Machine-based approaches to generating and evaluating analytic products from disparate structured and unstructured data types are emerging areas of research for the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC). As these approaches mature beyond demonstration systems with controlled data sources, such IC systems will require a means for inspecting and ensuring the integrity of the data that are ingested by these systems. These considerations will become particularly critical as the information available to the IC’s analytic community continues to exceed the ability for traditional, human vetting. Accordingly, the ODNI and OUSD(I) are seeking ideas and descriptions of a viable technical approach for enabling the automated validation of information prior to the dissemination of machine-generated intelligence products. A total award pool of $75,000 is available for this Challenge with a guaranteed payout of $25,000.
This is an Ideation Challenge with a guaranteed award for at least one submitted solution.
Mechanical pulp is the material of choice – as a base material or additive – in order to increase the stiffness of cartonboard products (e.g. for cereals or cigarette packs). Although successful, this material is costly, hence the Seeker is looking for an alternative material that can lead to a cost reduction whilst achieving the same stiffness.
This is a Reduction-to-Practice Challenge that requires submission of written documentation. The Seeker will perform experimental validation of proposed solutions in order to determine the award.
