Maybe this is a use of artificial intelligence that we can all get behind ... using it to crack a fiendishly difficult puzzle.
The Guardian reports that crowdfunding publisher Unbound and AI platform Zindi are challenging humans to use AI to solve the literary puzzle Cain's Jawbone.
Cain's Jawbone, published in the 1930s, challenges readers to rearrange its 100 pages to place in the correct order and solve the six murders depicted within it.
Only four people have ever solved it.
The Unbound-Zindi call to action asks that participants put seventy-five pages in the proper order.
But don't delay on starting — the contest opens today and runs through December 31; the person or team that accomplishes the most will win $300.
