Community Guidelines and Code of Conduct

The AIcrowd community has grown considerably over the past couple of years and tackled some of the most exciting and diverse problems in the field of Artificial Intelligence. As the community grows, we want to ensure that the platform remains welcoming to everyone.

To meet this goal, we are introducing the community guidelines. We hope this will help create and maintain an environment where we can come together as a community in pursuit of our shared interests.

1. Remember to criticize ideas, not people

Subtlety and nicety can get lost during online interactions, due to miscommunication and assumptions. If the conversation seems to take hostile turns, please take a breather, think about it from other perspectives, and respond later. Please avoid:

  1. Name-calling
  2. Ad hominem attacks
  3. Responding to the tone of the post instead of the content
  4. Knee-jerk contradiction

2. Hate speech and Harassment are unacceptable

Hate speech is defined as content that attacks, threatens, incites violence against, or dehumanizes an individual or a group of individuals based on protected characteristics. This includes but is not limited to:

  1. Race
  2. Ethnicity
  3. National origin
  4. Religion
  5. Caste
  6. Sexual orientation
  7. Sex
  8. Gender
  9. Gender identity

3. Don’t get involved in Deceptive Practices

These practices harm the fairness and quality of the competitions offered on the platform. These include but are not limited to:

  1. Plagiarism
  2. Cheating
  3. Off-Topic Self-Promotions
