背景

 山口県では、デジタル技術を活用して地域課題の解決や新たな価値の創造を図るため、官民連係フォーラム「デジテック for YAMAGUCHI※1」を創設し、『共に考え、共に挑戦し、克服』を目標に、山口県が抱える課題に対して、シビックテック的活動からビジネス的活動まで幅広く取り組んでいます。
 取り組みの1つとして、AI人材育成プログラム「やまぐちAI Quest」を提供し、AI技術を活用した地域課題の解決や、新たな価値を創造できる人材育成に取り組んでいます。
 プログラムでは、『eラーニング講座(SIGNATE Cloud※2)』と『ハンズオン講座』を実施し、オンライン上でAIデータ分析の基礎から予測モデル作成スキルまで修得した後、予測精度向上のチューニング方法や学習方法などをコンペ形式のハンズオンにより修得いただきました。
 そして、この度、次のステップとして、山口県が抱える地域課題をテーマとした『AI開発コンペティション』を開催することとなりました。山口県の内外から多くの方にご参加いただくことで、高精度な予測モデル獲得による地域課題の解決を図るとともに、山口県のAI人材の育成を目指しています。
 本コンペティションでは、山口県内を走行した車両のドライブレコーダーの記録画像から、補修が必要な物体(区画線、道路標識、道路照明)を検出するAIモデルを作成していただきます。
 山口県内を走行する一般車両に搭載されたドライブレコーダーの記録画像を分析することにより「道路標識や区画線などの要補修物体」の位置情報を事前に認識できれば、これまで必要とした、要補修物体の確認作業時間などを軽減できるのではないかと考えています。
 『共に考え、共に挑戦し、克服しましょう!』皆様からの多数のご応募をお待ちしております。

U18部門設置の背景

 山口県教育委員会ではAI・データサイエンス人材の早期育成を目的に「やまぐち高校生データサイエンティスト育成講座」を開催していますが、高校生のAI・データサイエンスに関する興味・関心の高さ、また高校生とは思えぬ知識・技術の豊富さに大変驚かされています。全国に散らばる熱い思いを持った若者が活躍できる場、同世代で競える場を提供したいと思い、U18部門を設けています。2004年4月2日以降に生まれた方であれば、高専生でも中学生でも学校に所属していなくても、誰でも参加可能です。皆様の奮ってのご参加をお待ちしています。

開催部門

今回、以下2部門をご用意しています。課題や提供データは同じですが、懸賞内容が異なります。

「U18部門」= 2004/4/2以降に生まれた方が参加可能
「一般部門」= 2004/4/1以前に生まれた方が参加可能

参加はいずれか1部門のみとなりますので、データダウンロード時に表示される応募フォーム内で、希望の部門を選択してください。
なお、リーダーボードは両部門を総合して表示されますが、ユーザーの皆様がどちらの部門に参加表明されたかが分かるよう、部門名のフラグが表示されます。

※一度部門を選択すると変更はできません。
※虚偽が発覚した場合は、入賞資格の取り消しとなりますのでご注意ください。
※参加時にご登録いただく個人情報は、個人を特定できない統計情報としてのみ利用いたします。

課題

山口県内を走行した車両のドライブレコーダー動画データの各フレームに対して、修繕が必要な物体(道路標識・道路照明・区画線)が存在するか否かを検出するアルゴリズムを作成していただきます。



データ概要


学習用評価用(データは非公開)
ルート山口県内の複数箇所の道路
解像度1920 x 1080
FPS10.0
ラベル道路標識 / 道路照明 / 区画線 及びその修繕の要否と矩形情報

投稿方法

通常の予測結果ファイルの代わりに、学習済みモデルと推論部分のソースコードを投稿します。投稿すると、自動で予測結果ファイルの作成、サイズと推論速度、認識精度の評価が行われます。投稿ファイルの作成方法については、配布データのreadmeを参照してください。
※ソースコードの実行を伴うため、評価結果がリーダーボードに反映されるまで時間がかかります。

サイズ・推論速度の評価

投稿ファイル(ソースコードと学習済みモデルをまとめたもの)のサイズと推論時間は、以下の流れで評価されます。
1. 投稿ファイルのサイズの閾値1GBを超える場合は、評価の対象外。
2. 投稿ファイルの解凍後、ソースコード(と学習済みモデル)が以下の環境で実行され、推論時間と精度を測定。
   - OS: Debian GNU/Linux 11 (bullseye)
   - GPU: Tesla T4
   - CUDA: Version 11.3.1

   ※ 実行環境のDocker imageはこちらを、Dockerfileはこちらを参照。
3. 推論時間の閾値180[秒/動画]を超える場合は、評価はされるが順位は付かない(リーダーボードは順位"-"で表示)
  ※学習済みモデルの読み込みを含め全体で3時間以上かかる場合はエラーとなり、評価の対象外。
4. 投稿ファイルのサイズと推論時間が閾値をクリアした場合のみ、予測結果の認識精度を元に順位が決定。(リーダーボードに表示される推論時間の単位は、[秒/動画])


精度の評価

  • 評価関数「MAE」(Mean Absolute Error)を使用します。
  • 真値と予測値は0, 1の値をとります。1の場合は対応するカテゴリが存在する、0の場合は存在しない。
  • カテゴリは要補修の区画線、道路標識、照明の3種類です。
  • 評価値は0~1の値をとり、精度が高いほど小さな値となります。




    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。
    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. 最終評価による総合順位の上位3チーム、及び「U18部門」の上位3チームを入賞候補者とし、事務局から連絡いたします。
     ※U18部門の参加チームが総合順位の上位3位に入った場合、両方の入賞候補者となります。
    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。
     ・学習や前処理など、応募時に投稿した推論部分を除いた部分のソースコード
     ・ソースコードの説明書(前処理部分、学習部分などが分かるように明記。学習済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)も明記)
     ・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失格となり、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
     ・入賞時の提出物の権利譲渡に同意してない
     ・プログラムが動作しない
     ・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。

    ※失格となった場合や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。

    参加の前提
    ・チート行為やルールを無視した方法による参加は認められません。
    ・他者に対する誹謗中傷や公序良俗に反する行為を禁止します。事務局が悪質と判断したケースにおいては、入賞資格や会員資格の剥奪の可能性があることをを予めご了承のうえご参加ください。
