The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) is seeking short (15-60 seconds) videos that explore how standards support the emerging technologies that are beginning to impact our lives today and into the future. As part of its 2018 celebration of World Standards Day (WSD) and its theme of “International Standards and the 4th Industrial Revolution,” IEEE-SA is looking for creative, original, quality videos that are relevant to this year’s WSD theme and that demonstrate how IEEE standards address the blending of our physical, digital, and biological worlds. For example, artificial intelligence and robots are starting to drive the decision processes of our lives, autonomous cars are being tested on our highways, and smart systems are linking our lives in surprising ways.
Based on the video submissions, IEEE-SA will select up to three videos to receive a USD $500 prize.
- Each entrant must complete the contest submission form
- Each submission must include self-identification, including a legitimate email address and legal name
- Videos should include references to IEEE standards related to emerging and converging technologies
- Videos must either be an uploaded MP4 file or a link to a video placed on YouTube
- IEEE membership not required to participate
- Contest end date: 14 September 2018
Submissions will be judged according to the following criteria: relevance to the WSD theme, factuality, creativity, originality, and quality of production.
