Are you fed up with all those buzzword-driven Artificial Intelligence (AI) publications and presentations? Are you curious to learn how to master AI for your day-to-day Competitive Intelligence/Market Intelligence (CI/MI) work?

Then you should become AI-savvy by joining ICI’s challenge
and reinvent your CI/MI processes!


ICI, the premier institute for CI/MI education, has a long tradition of providing challenges as an advanced learning path. The 2024 challenge incorporates just that: your highway to AI application!


Who can join?

Anyone willing to discover the beauty of AI for CI/MI can register for free, not matter if he/she attends the conference or not.


How does the Challenge work?

After registration, you’ll receive login credentials to ICI’s AI Challenge portal. There, you’ll find a real-life case study with your challenge instructions. You can work on the challenge individually or in teams.

The challenge consists of several tasks that build up to a full project. You can choose to complete just one task or, if you’re feeling brave, tackle them all.


To support you, we’ll provide regular networking and coaching sessions. These sessions allow you to share ideas and findings with your peers and learn from ICI mentors and facilitators.

Along your journey we’ll give points for your achievements and at the end of the journey we’ll add up the points with those gaining the most points as either individuals or teams getting mentioned at the 2024 conference as AI Stars.
