▼はじめに:主催企業からのメッセージ  詳しくはこちら


データの力で、社会的価値の創造を

私たちSMBCグループは、「最高の信頼を通じて、お客さま・社会とともに発展するグローバルソリューションプロバイダー」というビジョンを掲げ、環境問題をはじめとした、5つの日本社会の課題の解決に取り組んでいます。
このコンペをきっかけに、データ分析だけでなく、社会課題解決にも関心を持ってもらえれば大変うれしく思います。

▼開催部門

今回のコンテストでは、2つの部門を設けています。課題やデータはどちらの部門も共通ですが、それぞれの部門で上位3名の参加者を表彰します。

「学生部門」:2024年1月26日時点で学生の方かつ、社会人経験のない方対象
「社会人部門」:学生部門に該当しない方対象

※どの部門に参加するかは、参加登録時の回答内容から自動で決定されます。


▼入賞資格

  • 表彰式(オンライン)でプレゼンテーションが可能であること
  • SMBCグループ役職員に該当しないこと

▼タスク内容

都市の緑化や森林保護の取り組みにおいて、木の健康状態を予測することは極めて重要です。
木の大きさ、潜在的な問題点、周辺環境といった定量および定性データをベースに分析モデルを構築し、木の健康状態の予測にチャレンジしていただきます。
木の不健康は都市やコミュニティに様々な問題をもたらします。これには、都市の美観の低下、気候変動への適応能力の減少、そして生物多様性の喪失などが含まれます。さらに、不健康な木は倒れるリスクが高く、これが人々の生活や財産に被害をもたらす可能性も考慮されるべきです。環境機関や都市管理者は、木の健康状態の予測と管理のために、周期的な監視、公衆への教育、先進的なモニタリングシステムの導入、早期対応策の確立といった手段を用いています。

▼評価関数

  • 精度は、MeanF1Score(MacroF1Score) により評価します。
  • 評価値は0~1の値をとり、精度が高いほど大きな値となります。




▼入賞者決定の流れ

  1. コンペ最終日までの評価(暫定評価)は評価用データセットの一部で評価し、コンペ終了後の評価(最終評価)は評価用データセットの残りの部分で評価します。リーダーボードはコンテスト終了時に自動的に最終評価に切り替わり、それを元に最終順位を決定します。このため、開催中と終了後では順位が大きく変動する場合もあります。
    ※投稿ファイルは最大2つまで選択可能で、最終評価のスコアの高いファイルが自動的に採用されます。
  2. スコアが同値の場合は、早い日時でご応募いただいた参加者を上位とします。
  3. 最終順位が上位の方を入賞候補者とし、事務局から連絡いたします。
  4. 検収のため、入賞候補者には以下を提出していただきます。
    • モデルのソースコード
    • 学習済みモデル(常に保存しておくよう注意してください)
    • ソースコードの説明書(前処理部分、学習部分、推論部分が分かるように明記)
    • 学習済みモデルを利用した場合は、そのソース(データの所在、論文のリンク等)
    • 実行環境(OSのバージョン、使用ソフトウェア及び解析手法)
    • データの解釈、工夫点、モデリングから得られる示唆等
  5. 検収期間中、入賞候補者及び、その提出モデルが下記いずれかに該当する場合は、入賞の資格を失います。
    • 事務局からの手続き上の連絡・要求に対して指定された期限内に対応しない
    • 参加条件やルールを満たしていない
    • その他、事務局が不当と判断した場合
  6. 検収をクリアした方の中から、入賞者及び順位を確定します。

※入賞候補者が入賞資格を失った場合は、最終スコアが次点の方が繰り上がり、新たな入賞候補となります。
※不正が発覚した場合は、SIGNATE独自の裁量により、メダル・ポイントが付与されない場合があります。
