Day 3 of Cypher 2019 saw a sequel to last year’s AI Quiz, as we once again got together to challenge the audience from an ever-developing industry to knuckle down some answers and win some neat cashes prizes for the same. The event saw 60+ attendees competing in the 20 question prelims, from which 6 teams were selected. The winners from Aditya Birla Group won a cash prize of Rs 30,000 followed by a cash prize of 20,000 and 10,000 by first and second runner ups respectively.

There were close to 300 attendees for the Quiz

The event lasted for an approximate time of 2 hours, and saw the debut of “Wheel of Fortune” Round, which brings the spirit of game shows to quizzing in a manner which is rewarding, but not heartbreaking. Some of the questions which were loved by the audience were:

“The game Go became famous worldwide and was the subject of immense research by computer scientists, leading to the development of an AI player X. The AI’s matchup against Lee Sedol is the subject of a 2017 award winning documentary. Identify the name of this AI player.”

“Easy on humans, hard on bots” is the tagline of which service provided by Google?

This is a stochastic model describing a sequence of possible events in which the probability of each event depends only on the state attained in the previous event. What are we talking about?
