Tokyo (VNA) – Two Vietnamese teams and nine others from Japan competed in the final of Pikalong War, a contest for programmers, in Tokyo on October 27.

The contest began on September 25 with the participation of 67 teams with 200 programmers.

Deputy General Director of FPT Japan Do Van Khac, a representative of the contest’s organising board, said Pikalong War creates a playground for software developers to learn from each other’s experience in developing new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Blockchain.

Pikalong War was organised by FPT Japan, a branch of Vietnam’s largest software producer FPT Group, for those who are in love with the challenge of AI, with prizes worth up to 17,000 USD.

The first prize went to Vookie, a three-member team from the University of Tokyo. -VNA
