Frequently asked questions

How many participants can join a team?

Teams can have 1 - 5 participants. You can go solo, or team up with others.

Am I eligible to participate?

You can participate as long as you are in grades 9 - 12, studying in India.

Is there any participation fee?

No, participation is free as we want to keep the competition open to as many students as possible.

I am new to Machine Learning. Can I still participate?

Yes, we encourage you to participate and join a healthy collaborative community for introducing yourself to machine learning. We have starter resources availalbe here (tisbmlthon.com/resources) For the problem statements, we will be providing starter code, and mentors (professionals and students) will guide you through the competition. This competition will also be a great learning opportunity for you to get started with Machine Learning.

Why is competition 9 days long?

Since every school follows a different calendar, we understand that not everyone can take out time on a single weekend. We do NOT expect participants to spend the entire week on this competition. We want you to work whenever you get time.

What is the structure of the competition?

You will be provided a dataset for the problem statement you have chosen on 10th April, at the start of the competition. You need to train a Machine Learning model, and make predictions on a second "test" dataset that we will be providing. The most accurate predictions on the "test" dataset will determine the winner.
