The term AI has become synonymous with "something we'll see in 30 years".
AIs can drive cars and pick people out of pictures and even go back through my google photos album and match my 7 yr old with her baby picture (regardless if it does this by inferring that I only have one kid and therefore this is probably it or through facial recognition or some combination of the two, it's a nifty trick.), and beat a world class human at not only Chess but Go. My 13 yr old self, fresh out of reading Neuromancer would have told you we'd need an AI for that.

They want to write code that without human assistance can analyze a binary, (a neat trick by itself with the halting problem) for weaknesses, develop a patch for them, and at the same time attack its opponents and circumvent their fixes.
The real trick will be tho, the winner from the AI contest goes against the human's at Defcon on CTF. The money is heavily against the AI, but even if it places a good showing, it'll
