70th Anniversary Student Challenge

The IEEE Computer Society Anniversary Challenge is an international challenge open to all IEEE Computer Society student members across the globe. Students are invited to create a solution, based on the IEEE Computer Society 2022 report, that will solve a real-world issue in a smart, fresh way.

Your Challenge

Submit your presentation with a supporting essay (maximum 1,000 words) on what technologies in the 2022 report are being utilized and why you think your solution will work. The final judges especially value those proposals that submit a working prototype, demo, or code. These can be made available by sharing a link in your essay or presentation.
