Is it mandatory to leverage the sandbox for our solution prototype submission?

Participating teams can leverage these technologies in the design and development of their solution prototypes. However, this is optional and not mandatory. Participants are also free to augment the provided data sets with their own externally sourced data. Participants are encouraged to propose solutions that best address the problem statements.

Will participants be able to retain all Intellectual Property (IP) rights of the proposal?

Any Intellectual Property (IP) rights of a solution remain vested in the participant that has submitted the solution.
