APRU New York Times Case Competition

Take part in the Association of Pacific Rim Universities and New York Times Case Competition 2018

Students are invited to participate in the annual Asia-Pacific Case Competition hosted by APRU and The New York Times, with the opportunity to be published in The New York Times International Edition and read by an audience of global thought leaders.

For this competition, individuals and teams of up to three, will be asked to write an 800-word policy brief to a political leader or public official in your country on the best ways to ensure that social goals are built into Artificial Intelligence (AI) research and development, and that the benefits of AI are shared equitably for sustainable development demonstrating how risks might be mitigated. Each policy brief must include at least three original photographs, charts, figures, or infographics to illustrate issues and solutions proposed.

All entries will be judged by The New York Times awarding-winning newsroom and professional judges from the Association of Pacific Rim Universities, with the winning entry published in The New York Times International Edition.

The winning team will also receive a NYT trophy and gifts with their work being showcased across various APRU platforms including at events, publications and the website. All participants will receive a 4-week digital subscription to the New York Times.
