The ENJOY AI Series keeps the competition contents secret until 2 hours before the contest, which really tests students' mastery of the basic knowledge of robotics and enables contestants to have a deeper understanding and knowledge of artificial intelligence technologies.
The TAI Challenge includes the Smart City Challenge, which simulates future smart city scenarios, and Smart Vehicle Contest that integrates intelligence and technology. Through tutorial guidance and team work, the competition constantly sharpens students' independent design abilities.
The Youth Robot Design Contest is an important force for China to promote the training of global innovative talents, scientific and technological professionals and skilled and technical personnel, and will also contribute ideas and solutions to the development of global robot industry.
It should be mentioned that competitions for the youth are not only in the field of robotics. In recent years, China's national competitions for primary and middle school students have expanded to 45 in number, mainly covering natural science literacy, humanities literacy and art and sports.
