Hi Nell Is the challenge prize awarded for: 1) the proposal of a suitable system (that can host future data-sets); or 2) for actually creating data in data-sets; or 3) both (system + actual data-sets)?
The challenge prize will be mostly awarded for proposing a system or method that could allow us to effectively curate a data-set of ethical values. It's not required for you to create a data-set, but if you can, doing so could increase your chances of winning. As it could serve as a way to prove the viability of your idea.
We partnered with HeroX for a joint bid to respond to a government request for proposal. Our experience with the HeroX team was extremely positive.
There were times where flexibility was critical, their team took the approach of a true partnership. Working against tight timelines, collaborating virtually, operating in different time zones; any one of these points could have created challenges, not for this team. HeroX went the extra mile, which is a rarity for us in our past experiences in collaborating with other partners. The responsive, professionalism and level of expertise was noted and appreciated.
Other than their capabilities, we were impressed by their overall team in the way they conducted themselves. There was true core values alignment. We would absolutely invite the opportunity to work with their team again.
