This year again, MMSports carries out a competition where participants can compete on state-of-the-art problems applied to real-world sport specific data. The competition is made of individual challenges, each of which is sponsored by SportRadar with a US$1,000.00 prize. Each challenge comes with a toolkit describing the task, the dataset and metrics on which participants will be evaluated. More information on the challenges will be coming soon.
