understand the challenge competition that we propose!
Kaggle Challenge of April-May 2021 is a competition dedicated to students from
Politecnico di Milano who want to test their skills in data science and machine
The competition is open to teams of 1 to 3 students, who will have to find an efficient
solution to find a product in different images, in a Kaggle competition supported by
Shopee. Submission to the challenge can be uploaded until 10th of May, after which the
leaderboard will be finalised with the private scores of each team.
Two different images of similar wares may represent the same product or two completely
different products; the goal of retailers is to identify similar products offered by
competitors, and offer them at a better price, task that can be achieved through a
combination of deep learning and traditional machine learning.
Students have to register individually on the PMDS website, and they will receive an
email with further instructions (telegram group + spreadsheet). The application to the
competition ends the 23rd of April. Students will have the opportunity to form teams
with the other participants, or ask PMDS for help in finding a team (write to us if you
want more info!).
The challenge is managed on Kaggle, but we will keep a separate leaderboard with the
teams signed up for the challenge; indeed we are not organizing the actual competition
ourselves, we are just giving to students of PoliMi an opportunity to form teams and
compete with each other.
Autonomous Driving Competition
We are proud to announce that we are organizing a new project activity in collaboration
with AEA, the Polimi Automation and Robotics Association!
We would like to create a team which will become familiar with the tools and resources
of Duckietown, a foundation with the objective of spreading knowledge about robotics and
The final objective of the team is to take part in the AI Driving Olympics, where you
will have to teach a mini car to drive itself inside a circuit.
