Call for Code Spot Challenge for Wildfires

November 23, 2020 5:00 pm GMT

🔥Join us to learn about this new challenge

The ultimate goal is to predict the area of wildfires in 7 regions in Australia for February 2021 with historical wildfire and both historical and forecast weather data, so you will be predicting fires before they happened!
The final submissions will be on 31 January 2021.
But until then you can work on your model with the provided data and any other open datasets that you think might be relevant.
Before the final submission there will be three prediction submissions to first predict the wildfires in February 2020, and then for the third and fourth week of January. This will give you time to improve your model for the final submission.

🏫 In this session you will learn:

  • How you can participate
  • About the datasets that will be provided
  • How to get started exploring the data in a Jupyter notebook
  • How to join the challenge
