## π΅οΈ Introduction

Where is the skeleton facing ?

This problem is an adapted version of the ORIENTME which adds a few more layers to complexity to the task of predicting the orientation of a 3D model from a single picture.

This problem introduces a non-uniform distribution of samples in the training and the test set. And more importantly, this problem also evaluates out-of-distribution generalization.

For input you will be given a large number of images, for about half of them, we have measured the orientation of the skeleton. But to be able to stitch all those images together, you have to figure out how to `predict` the `orientation` of the skeleton for the rest of the images.

Understand with code! Here is some code to get you started right away ! π

## πΎ Dataset

The training dataset consists of `9999` images of size `2048x1898` with `4` channels each (for `RGBA`). The associated label is a single continuous variables :

• `xRot` : Orientation of the Skeleton, in degrees, along an arbitrarily chosen axis (a number between `0` and `360`). The axis around which this value is measured, is consitent across the whole of the training and the test set.

The test dataset consists of `10001` images of size `2048x1898` with `4` channels each (for `RGBA`). The goal of the task is to predict the `xRot` value of the Skeleton in these test images.

## π Files

Following files are available in the `resources` section:

• `train.tar.gz` - (`9999` samples) Tar File containing all the training images, and associated labels

• `test.tar.gz` - (`10001` samples) Tar file containing all the test images

• `sample_submission.csv` - A sample submission file (with random predictions) to demonstrate the expected file structure by the evaluation setup.

## π Submission

• Prepare a csv containing header as :
• `filename`, `xRot`
• The values of the `filename` column should match the file name of each of the images in the test set.
• The values of the `xRot` should be a number between `0` and `360`, representing the orientation of the skeleton (in degrees) along the respective axis.
• Sample submission format is available in the `resources` section of the challenge page as `sample_submission.csv`.
