Challenge@Polito_by Students is an innovative teaching activity carried at the Politecnico di Torino. It is an integral part of PoliTo’s strategy to promote innovative education and entrepreneurial culture among the Students. The main goal of these challenges is to involve Students in learning initiatives capable of bridging them closer to the entrepreneurial world. These activities promote the early stage ideas coming by Students and give them the basic principles to develop their business projects. The process is simple but very involving: PoliTo selects a macro topic, the Students create their multidisciplinary team and apply their own ideas about it. The Challenges are open to every master Students of the Politecnico di Torino. The Challenges are carried out an experimental educational laboratory: the CLIK - Connection Lab & Innovation Kitchen, or similar space. At the CLIK lab, during the challenge phase, Students can experiment and put into practice what they have learned during their lectures, in an informal and multidisciplinary environment that promotes the spirit of creativity and collaboration. Challenge@PoliTo_by Students – Artificial Intelligence: Shape the Future The technological revolution is transforming our lives at breakneck speed, dramatically altering the ways in which we work, learn and even live together. Alongside the increasingly sophisticated use of big data, artificial intelligence (AI) is undergoing exponential growth and finding new applications in an ever-increasing number of sectors, including security, the environment, research and education, health, culture and trade. AI could open up tremendous opportunities for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Its applications enable innovative solutions, improved risk assessment, better planning and faster knowledge sharing, taking into account the aspects of an inclusive digital economy and society, as well as the security and stability of the designed systems. You can create your own team, apply with your team’s idea and try to develop it into a start-up. Students can take part in this revolution. They can combine concepts and ideas in several application domains with AI-technologies to make the difference and shape the future. In particular, we are seeking solutions focusing on the following application domains: • Automotive • Smart environments • Robotics • Health • Finance • Education

There will be the Team Check and Team Building phases to the establishment of multidisciplinary teams. Common meeting of 2 days. ● Idea Definition: two weeks in which the teams will analyze the problem in details and define their ideas. A team of Mentors will support the teams through weekly meetings. ● Idea Presentation – 1st Work Progress: each team will present (by a pitch) its idea and the plan to develop it. Common meeting of 1 day. ● Prototyping and Development: teams will meet at CLIK on a weekly basis to meet with Mentors who will provide support to the development of the project. 11 weeks of team work. ● Mid-Check Presentation x 2 – 2nd and 3rd Work Progress: two meeting of half day on work progress during the Prototyping and Development phase. ● Final Presentation: the teams will present their projects through the pitch of the idea. Common meeting of 1 day at the end of the 14th week. During the challenge, PoliTo will provide other educational content useful for the development of the ideas by Teams and personal culture. For example, Business Plan creation, Social Impact, Communication & Pitch Learning, etc. The dates will be defined during next months. Every team will self-organize its own working time and methodology, but will have to spend about 1,5 hour/week, supported by Mentors, in the CLIK Lab, similar space or in remote (clarifications will be provided). The Teams, during the challenge, have to hand in the following deliverables: • Three ppts Work Progress: Pitches to explain achieved outcomes and next steps of project, during work progress meetings; • One monthly report: a paper monthly report to describe achieved outcomes and next steps; • One ppt Final Presentation: final pitch, during final presentation, to present the whole work; • One final report: final report about whole work. PoliTo will provide a form. The explained structure as well as the dates are only an example, it could be modified during the challenge.
