100,000 minds working together are better than one. For this inaugural global challenge, city leaders around the world convened virtually to identify the most vexing problems and invited innovative thinkers from across the world to come up with the best technology solutions to these three top challenges:
1) Revitalizing the Urban Core, 2) Sustaining a Clean, Green City, and 3) Minimizing Traffic Gridlock
The winning team for each challenge will receive $3 million cash, and $1 million in cash and prizes will be awarded to the remaining finalists and winner of the popular vote.
To demonstrate how technology can greatly improve our lives, the entire TechniCities Grand Challenge is conducted online except for the Judging Day & Awards Ceremony held in NYC.
