The purpose of the competition is to expand the visibility and interestingness of information technology, robotics and artificial intelligence in Finland and encourage students to combine the knowledge of separate fields without prejudice.
A message is also given to the industry: new technologies have to be without prejudice brought into use both in the products and in production. These rules are translated from the Finnish ones (to large extent using machine translation).
