What is the timeline for the competition?
The preliminary start date is June 10th, 2023. Season 1 Episode 1 will last 12 weeks with $250K in prize money. Future episodes to be announced soon.
How is the prize money going to be split?
We will release further exact details concerning the prize money closer to the start date of the competition. Expect a flat payout structure: we want to reward as many people for participating as possible. The prize money will be paid out on a weekly basis, with a significant bonus for the top three performing models.
How will you check for model safety during the competition?
At Chai we conduct extensive model safety checks pre-deployment. We will be running our in-house model safety tool on each submitted model before deploying them to real users. Any contested models will be flagged for manual review.
Who retains ownership of my model and dataset?
To submit a model to Chai Research's AI competition, it must be uploaded to HuggingFace with an MIT license. The participant may continue to use their model, dataset, and training script for their own purposes. To receive payment, the participant may be required to provide the dataset and training script that can be used to recreate the submitted model. These terms and conditions may be subject to change.
How exactly will the model submission and leaderboard work?
You will be able to submit your model to our competition web portal which is due to launch on June 10th 2023, most likely via HuggingFace. Your model will be automatically processed by our servers and will then find a home on our leaderboard amongst other community models. The exact details will be released closer to the start date.
