2018 IEEE Big Data Cup
http://cci.drexel.edu/bigdata/bigdata2018/index.html
<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fcci.drexel.edu%2Fbigdata%2Fbigdata2018%2Findex.html&data=02%7C01%7Cxh29%40drexel.edu%7Ce2f07c3f53094953364a08d5b1377ee1%7C3664e6fa47bd45a696708c4f080f8ca6%7C0%7C1%7C636609774277236740&sdata=7ejbHbZTz4jR%2BjgBEmFjhqyWPXsQFJDWdQ%2FVZ15Mewk%3D&reserved=0>

We invite individuals or teams from any academic or industrial sectors to
submit a letter of intent to participate in the IEEE Big Data Cup as a
sponsored event of the 2108 International Conference on Big Data (IEEE Big
Data 2018, (http://cci.drexel.edu/bigdata/bigdata2018/index.html
<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fcci.drexel.edu%2Fbigdata%2Fbigdata2018%2Findex.html&data=02%7C01%7Cxh29%40drexel.edu%7Ce2f07c3f53094953364a08d5b1377ee1%7C3664e6fa47bd45a696708c4f080f8ca6%7C0%7C1%7C636609774277236740&sdata=7ejbHbZTz4jR%2BjgBEmFjhqyWPXsQFJDWdQ%2FVZ15Mewk%3D&reserved=0>

The Data Cup is an analytics and programming contest based on datasets
released by the organizations sponsoring the competitions. These contests
will run for several months, with winners announced in the IEEE Big Data
2018  in December 10-13, 2018.



This year’s Big Data Cup supports the following two tracks.



Track1 : Road Damage Detection. Since roads have a great influence on
people's lives, maintenance and management of roads should be done
periodically and exhaustively. However, due to lack of financial resources,
many local governments are not able to conduct sufficient inspections. In
fact, some municipalities automate damage determination by using
high-performance sensors, but because of their high cost, many
municipalities are unable to introduce them. Therefore, there is a need for
the development of low-cost method to judge the damage of the road surface
at low cost. This challenge is to detect damages contained in road images
photographed by a vehicle-mounted camera. When this challenge goes well,
there is a possibility that a simple road check can be done using only
hand-held devices such as a smartphone. More details of this track of the
Big Data Cup can be found here: https://bdc2018.mycityreport.net/overview/
<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fbdc2018.mycityreport.net%2Foverview%2F&data=02%7C01%7Cxh29%40drexel.edu%7Ce2f07c3f53094953364a08d5b1377ee1%7C3664e6fa47bd45a696708c4f080f8ca6%7C0%7C1%7C636609774277236740&sdata=sr8VvNiknjszVC7CHmBEtXa%2FbOd8E6gXY2ByIhfSb5U%3D&reserved=0>

Track2: Voice Data Challenge by FEMH. Computerized detection of voice
disorders has attracted considerable academic and clinical interest in the
hope of providing an effective screening method for voice diseases before
endoscopic confirmation. The goal of this competition is to detect
pathological voice and classify three disordered categories from acoustic
waveforms collected by FEMH (Far Eastern Memorial Hospital). From a health
science perspective, a pathological status of the human voice can
substantially reduce quality of life and occupational performance, which
results in considerable costs for both the patient and the society. More

The challenges run on a data competition platform (e.g., Kaggle) that
maintains a leaderboard for the participants. Final winners are selected
based on their standing on the leaderboard, and a 6-page report describing
their algorithms and results. Winners will be awarded a prize provided by
the challenge sponsors. There will be a workshop in the IEEE BigData 2018
conference in which the invited teams will present their solutions.
Interested parties should consult the above websites for the individual
data challenges for more details.

Important Dates:

Deadline for contest teams to submit letter of intent: June 10, 2018
Deadline for contest teams to submit final report and solutions, November
10, 2018
Announcement of winning teams, Nov 20, 2018
