Strong proposals will release interesting and novel datasets to the participants and propose tasks that are challenging, yet achievable within the expected timeline. To encourage broad participation in the challenge competition, tasks and data should be made publicly accessible where possible.
We will consider topics from (but not limited to) the following big data application domains:
● Health and wellness
● Advanced manufacturing
● Retail and e-commerce
● Smart City and Community
● Blockchain Technology
● Transportation and autonomous driving
The Challenges involve a released dataset and a well-defined problem with clear evaluation metrics. The challenges run on a data competition platform (e.g., Kaggle) that maintains a leaderboard for the participants. Semi-finalists are selected based on their standing on the leaderboard, and they will be invited to submit a 6-page report describing their algorithms and results. There will be a workshop in the BigData 2018 conference in which the invited teams will be able to present their solution.
Tentative Competition Timeline.
Step 1 - Solicitation of big data problems/topics, March 20, 2018
Step 2 - Proposal evaluation and selection of topics/problems, April 05, 2018
Step 3 - Data Release, Platform setup and solicitation of challenge participants, April 20, 2018
Step 4 - Deadline for contest teams to submit letter of intent, May 31, 2018
Step 5 - Deadline for contest teams to submit final report and solutions, November 10, 2018
Step 6 - Announcement of winning teams, Nov 20, 2018
Data Challenge Proposal Format
Proposals should answer the following questions:
● Who are the organizers? Provide the names, affiliations, contact information, and brief bio of the organizers.
● Which sector does the proposed Data Challenge belong to?
● What is the dataset to be released? If there are privacy concerns regarding the data, we advise that the organizers first seek clearance from the legal department of their organization regarding the dataset release.
● What prizes will be offered? Note that cash prizes will be shared between competitors and BigData, to defray the expenses of hosting demonstrations of the finalists’ submissions at BigData.
● Do you require source code with submissions?
Challenge Specific Questions:
● What are the task and the evaluation metrics?
● What competition infrastructure will be used? Our default hosting platform is Kaggle, which may impose fees to be borne by Challenge organizers. If you prefer to host it on your own infrastructure, specify the reasons and the resources you can commit for running the competition.
Deadline for proposal Submission: March 20, 2018. Please submit the proposal in a PDF file format by emailing to IEEE Big Data 2018 Cup Co-Chairs
