AI allowed for first time due to its central role in future of work
We received an exceptionally large number of submissions, many of which showed a great level of originality and imagination. We decided to allow AI to be used in the competition for the first time because we expect AI to be an essential part of the future of work and have the potential of greatly enhancing human capabilities and creativity.
The winner receives £500 and the runners-up each receive £100. The competition is supported by a Cambridge Judge Behavioural Small Research Grant.
