A competition has been launched for small and medium firms to find innovations in digital public services, defence and retail.

Telecoms giant BT is working with the Cabinet Office and TechHub to offer a prize pot of £30,000 to three winners focusing on the theme of augmented intelligence.

The partners are seeking expertise in machine learning, robotics and artificial intelligence.

The UK-wide initiative is the latest in a series of BT Infinity Lab competitions. In addition to receiving £10,000, each of the winners will have six months to develop their idea with the support of industry experts from BT and help from TechHub’s global entrepreneur community, workspace and support programme.

To enter, businesses will need to submit a three-minute video explaining why their solution could be the next big tech innovation, by March 12. To find out more visit: www.btplc.com/btinfinitylab/augmentedintelligence
