We challenge you to step into the innovative world of large language models and generative AI, including the awe-inspiring technology of OpenAI's ChatGPT. Your task? Use your creativity and newly-acquired skills to design applications that could revolutionize the way we interact with libraries and conduct research.

All participating teams will have $50 worth of OpenAI credits (including access to the latest GPT-4 API) at your disposal, and your task is to design applications that could reshape how we interact with libraries and the process of research. Want some ideas? Read this accompanying piece.

On hand will be mentors who will guide and assist you on your journey.

Did we mention there are cash prizes? The top three performing teams will receive $3K, $2K, and $1K respectively.

So, what are you waiting for? Register and join now! It's a chance to innovate, learn from the best, and potentially win cash prizes!
