I would like to let you know that our team has uploaded a new version of the competition baseline - this is the final version that sets the prize threshold (you need to beat it by at least 10%). This new model is conceptually similar to the early baseline (we recently published its source code). However, in this model, we focused more on features derived from the available textual data (milestone description, milestone notes, and comment notes).
As you can see, the improvement in the preliminary score is quite high.
Due to the delayed publication of the baseline, we decided to give participants some additional time for the preparation of their solutions. We decided to extend the competition deadline by two weeks, i.e. you will be able to submit new solutions until September 28, 2020.
Does this mean the baseline does not need to be beaten by 10%? Thanks.
No, I was not accurate - you still need to beat this new baseline by 10% to get the prizes :-)
Thanks for noting this, I will edit my previous post to avoid confusion.
Where can we get a new baseline?
Hello. We are not planning to make the code available to participants (at least not before the end of the challenge).
