Scoring Algorithm Request for Comments
Later this year, we will share the scoring algorithm for the Artificial Intelligence Cyber Challenge Qualifying Competition (AQC). AIxCC competitors will be evaluated according to the scoring algorithm. To ensure that the competition is fair and high quality, DARPA will solicit feedback from the community about the objectives and the design of the AIxCC scoring algorithm. This release will coincide with a Zoom information session. We’ll provide additional details ASAP.
