Thanks for all the answers and also for organizing this event!
Looking forward to the publication of the guidelines!
Thanks for the extensive answer! I’m glad you are seeing it the same way I do
A few more questions that are more or less linked to this:
Is an algorithmic solution (i.e. involving no learning/AI/ML) acceptable? I’m thinking mostly about the PKHND challenge, were it’s obvious that it can be solved without ML
Regarding the publication of solutions, does that mean the solutions will be tested for reproducibility? And if yes, is 100% reproducibility necessary for a solution to be acceptable?
How will the publication of the solutions work? Through posts in the discussions, Github repos and/or something else?
I was wondering if the usage of external data is allowed for this challenge (and the other challenges of the Blitz as well)
If I were to find the annotated dataset online, it would be fairly easy to overfit the test set and get 100% F1 score using it, although not very interesting… Would something like this be allowed? Or does this qualify as “unfair activities”?
