Private AI Bootcamp: Competition: Winner announcement and wrap-up


[MUSIC]>>So after re-combining
all the scores and now we have our winner.
Should we just announce it? So the winner is Group
2; Benjamin Che, Marcella Hastings, Monica,
Omar Hussein, congratulations. Come on stage. We have the
prizes which is a drone. Although it’s in a Microsoft bag, it is not a Microsoft product. It is a real drone, it’s not a toy, something you can take
picture. Come on stage.>>So, we want to wrap up by first of
all thanking everyone. We’re so delighted to have you. It was so great to meet all of you and find out what
you’re working on. We hope that many of you will apply for internships
both in our group, and in other groups, and in the other labs, both this year and in future years. We can’t hire everyone
this year into our group, but there’s a lot of good fit with different projects
that you’re working on and things that we have
been interested in. Obviously, we really want to capitalize on all the great
work that you’ve done here. So we are planning to put these video presentations
online publicly, so there was one person that
already expressed a concern, so afterwards let’s
follow up and discuss it. If there’s anybody else that
has a concern about that, please come up and
discuss it with us. So next point is as we’ve
said several times, we really encourage you to keep working with your groups
on your write-up. So if you can take your two pager and respond to a lot of the
questions that you were asked, we really felt like all of the
presentations were good and they all had strong ideas and some had more complicated protocols which was a plus on the novelty side, but that means that they had
either more details to work out or more potential attack surfaces, that kind of thing. So if you would keep
working together, and I would say mid-January would be the absolute deadline for
getting something to us because early February we’re going to run the standardization workshop, and we can work on writing
protocol specifications for protocols that seem to be really promising from what
you’ve come up with here. But in my experience,
the sooner the better. So if you can work together
even over the next week, get as much done as you can, but try to get us your final 2-5 page write-up no later than
the end of January. So I think that was
all I wanted to say. I just really want to thank everyone. Maybe what we could do is if we could do group pictures for each group, I think that would be really nice. Somebody’s shaking
her head over there. Is that okay, can we
do group pictures? Good. All right. Thanks everyone. One last thing, I
think we should give a big round of applause
for two people. One is once again Way, thank you for putting this together. Last but not least, [inaudible] this would not have
happened without you, so thank you so much.>>I just have a quick request, I sent out a mail for survey. You should have already
gotten it in your inbox. If everyone could just take
five minutes to fill it out, it would be really great for
future events. Thank you.
