2021 Challenges

For this year, we will begin offering challenge problems. These will be problems that are relevant to ecology, medicine or social welfare. For each of these problems, we will offer a data set or a way to create a data set, regression targets and baseline implementations.

This year, our three problems are
1. Analyzing professional graphs such as the publicly published IMBD movie dataset to detect effects of gender on career trajectory
2. Training RL agents to optimize sensory placement to detect wildfires in urban wilderness interface
3. Prototyping models to detect topological types of knotted graphs similar to topological types of organic molecules such as DNA and complicated proteins

We will have data set and specifications for problem 1. by February.
