February 14 & April 2 at La Paillasse – Paris
The event is free but you must register.
One day hackathon:
The launching event will take place at La Paillasse, 226 Rue St Denis, 75002 Paris. This event is co-sponsored by the Paris Machine Learning Meetups. The challenge will remain open until April 2, 2017.
There will be a “warm up challenge” whose objective is to test the protocol and platform of a large-scale upcoming EU challenge to predict electricity flows in the French power network (2 million Euros in prizes). This is an opportunity to get a head start and learn about spatio-temporal forecasting.
A different task is proposed, but of real practical interest: predicting upcoming frames in video data.
