Applications Competition

Technological integration of smart interactive devices, immersive technologies, and AI machine learning algorithms is the future of propelling Intelligent Reality (IR). We challenge developers to create AI machine learning IR applications to provide a real-time decision-making user experience with analytics capability for the immersive (VR/AR/MR/XR) environment.


IR Applications (any developers and university students) submitted to the Competition must meet the following guidelines:

  • Students must attend an accredited university (for students only)
  • Include AI machine learning techniques and run within VR/AR/MR/XR environment
  • Be able to run on a cross-platform emulator for evaluation
  • Grant IEEE to post codes and data (if any) under public IEEE ICIR GitHub

Evaluation criteria

  1. Quality of idea: creativity and originality
  2. Implementation of the idea: user experience, design, and performance
  3. Potential impact on Intelligent Reality: deploy AI machine learning in VR/AR/MR/XR environment


Winners (at the discretion of the Evaluation Team)

  • 1st Place: up to $1000 with 100 Ranking Points and IEEE certificate
  • 2nd Place: up to $500 with 50 Ranking Points and IEEE certificate
  • 3rd Place: up to $300 with 30 Ranking Points and IEEE certificate
  • All other submitters will receive 10 Ranking Points for participation

Ranking Points: Accumulated points submitter earned through all competitions
