Grand Challenge on DEBS 2018
June 25 - June 29
The DEBS Grand Challenge is a series of competitions, that started in 2010, in which both academics and professionals compete with the goal of building faster and more accurate distributed and event based system. Every year, the DEBS Grand Challenge participants have a chance to explore a new data set and a new problem and can compare their results based on the common evaluation criteria.
The 2018 DEBS Grand Challenge focuses on the application of machine learning to spatio-temporal streaming data. The goal of the challenge is to make the naval transportation industry more reliable by providing predictions for vessels’ destinations and arrival times. Predicting both correct destinations and arrival times of vessels are relevant problems, that once solved, will boost the efficiency of the overall supply chain management. The Grand Challenge data is provided by the MarineTraffic company and hosted by the Big Data Ocean (*) EU Horizon 2020 project. The evaluation platform is provided by the HOBBIT project (**) represented by AGT International (http://www.agtinternational.com/), an EU Horizon 2020 project.
