AI BLITZ 8 ⚑️ F1 edition is all about the need for speed 🏎 

Formula One is all about fast cars and chequered flags. But there’s more to the sport than its lightning speed! F1 is a coveted international auto racing event comprising of series of races (known as Grand Prix). It features intricately designed engineering marvels of cars racing on various circuits and closed roads across different nations. F1 is one of the most expensive and glamorous sport to exist. Now that you’re all caught up with the details, are you ready for your first Grand Prix?🏎 

For Blitz 8, you’re the team principal/leader for your very own F1 team, responsible for ensuring that various groups work together like a well-oiled machine! Your job is to ensure you win the race! By solving these 5 AI puzzles over the next 3 weeks you will empower your team to think innovatively. 

Get. Set. Go! πŸš₯ πŸš©

solve these tasks to win the ai race! 🏁

  1. F1 Car Detection: Using images of F1 cars in various locations, can you detect the car and output only the vehicle without any noise? This simple object classification problem will get your tires warmed up before the real race starts! Access the starter kit over here.
  2. F1 Speed Recognition: In F1, you have to be faster than everyone else to win. But what happens when you can't see the speedometer? Given an image, can your AI model predict the speed on the speedometer? Check out the starter kit to take the first step.
  3. F1 Team Classification: Each team spends millions of dollars in making their cars unique and fast. Given images of F1 car bodies from 2 top F1 teams, can you identify which team the car belongs to? Here's the starter kit to nudge you.
  4. F1 Smoke Elimination: Smoke of a car's exhaust can hamper the vision of the driver behind. This puzzle aims to tackle that problem. The input image contains smoke around the car, design an AI model that will remove the smoke and output a clean image. Here's a starter kit to help you out.
  5. F1 Car Rotation: F1 cars can sometimes spin out of control on the track. Just by looking at the photo, can we see how tilted the car is? AI can help! In this puzzle, you are provided with various images and you must create a model that identifies one of the four positions (left, right, front, back) of the car and output that information. Find the starter kit over here.
