Are the world’s problems getting you down? Bring your creativity and put on your problem solving hats for a 3-day innovation competition tackling the pressing needs of tomorrow, today! 

The Viterbi/Greif Sustainability Challenge is for USC students at all levels who are interested in creating solutions to sustainability problems. Students from all disciplines are invited to participate.

In our changing world of scarce resources, we need new, innovative solutions to solve our most pressing problems. Recent advances in AI, and more specifically generative AI models such as ChatGPT are changing the ways we can tackle such problems.

We’re calling for your ingenuity to develop a solution to a problem area in sustainability utilizing a large language model (LLM). Submissions can be in any area that addresses sustainability and could include solutions in the energy, circular economy, recycling/reuse, climate change, governance, or infrastructure space.
