This year´s ICDM Data Mining Contest task is to predict city traffic for the purpose of intelligent driver navigation and improved journey planning. There are three independent tasks: traffic, jams and GPS. Each of them approaches the problem of traffic prediction from a different perspective and involves different types of data. You can either participate in all of them or just choose any task you like. The competition started on June 22nd, 2010 (you can still register, the status is on open) and will last until September 6th, 2010. It is organized on TunedIT Challenges data mining platform. Best solutions will be awarded with prizes worth 5,000 USD in total.
The ICDM has established itself as the world’s premier research conference in data mining and will be held in Sydney, Australia on December 14-17.
