What’s the Challenge? Challenge Registration

Customer call centers receive large volumes of calls due to users abandoning existing self-service options.  The aim of this challenge is to develop an Intelligent Virtual Assistant solution that improves the self-service system and ultimately reduces the call volume to the call centers.

Two Competitions

As part of the Allstate Technology and Strategic Ventures (ATSV) Global University Partnership program, there are two competitions running simultaneously. Students from Arizona State University (ASU) and Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) are invited to participate. For the Arizona State University (ASU) competition there is a $4,000 prize fund.
