This competition has a total duration of 3 months, within which you will be able to make your submissions and obtain results automatically. Once the first part of the competition is over, you will have one week to choose your best model and submit it to be graded and considered for cash or points prizes. 

Once the whole process is completed, you will still be able to submit models as "Late Submission" as a learning experience, since, since the competition is officially over, those models will not be eligible to win prizes.


Description

Apple crops are one of the most important crops in the world. Foliar (leaf) diseases pose a major threat to the productivity and overall quality of apple crops. The current process of diagnosing diseases in apple crops by farmers is based on manual scanning by humans, which is time-consuming and costly.

Although computer vision-based models have shown promise for pattern identification, there are some limitations that need to be addressed. Large variations in visual symptoms of the same disease among different apple cultivars, or new varieties originating in the crop, are the main challenges for computer vision-based disease identification. 

These variations arise from differences in natural and image capture environments, e.g., leaf color and morphology, age of infected tissues, non-uniform image background and different illumination during image acquisition, etc.


Evaluation

The evaluation metric for this competition is Macro Mean F1-Score: https://scikit-learn.org/stable/modules/generated/sklearn.metrics.f1_score.html


Rules

Competition Rules

  • The code should not be shared privately. Any code that is shared, must be available to all participants of the competition through the platform
  • The solution should use only publicly available open source libraries
  • If two solutions get identical scores in the ranking table, the tie-breaker will be the date and time of the submission (the first solution submitted will win).
  • We reserve the right to request any user's code at any time during a challenge. You will have 48 hours to submit your code following the code review rules.
  • We reserve the right to update these rules at any time.
  • Your solution must not infringe the rights of any third party and you must be legally authorized to assign ownership of all copyrights in and to the winning solution code to DataSource.ai.
  • Competitors may register and submit solutions as individuals (not as teams, at least for now).
  • As this is a learning competition, apart from the rules in the DataSource.ai Terms of Use, no other particular rules apply.
  • Maximum 50 solutions submitted per day.

At the end of the competition you must submit the complete model in .ipynb (Jupyter Notebook) format - no other formats will be accepted. Normally, you'll have 1 week after the end of the competition to send it through our "Submit Final Model" button - This model will help us to get the real final evaluations, so the Private Leaderboard could change when the final private evaluation is shown. 


For this competition we want to give, in addition to the 20,000 points, a very special gift for the first place!

We will ship this prize to any country or city in the world! (made by https://www.devwear.co/)

This is a problem that can be solved using computer vision-based models or other deep learning techniques, since such models have proven effective in identifying patterns in images. 

It is also a multi-label classification problem, where the target column can have one or more possible labels. It is also important to clarify that this is an imbalanced dataset for certain labels.

Datasets:
  • The dataset named Train.csv has 3 columns: "id", "image" and "labels". As its name indicates, this will be the dataset used to train the model. The total number of samples in this dataset is 931. See links to images.
  • The dataset named Test.csv has 2 columns: "id", "image". As its name indicates, this will be the dataset used to test the model, making predictions on the "labels" column and sending the predictions to the platform. The total number of samples in this dataset is 466. See links to images.

The images are in separate links, and it is not necessary to re-send them to the platform. Here are the links to the images:

Links to images:
  • /train_images: is the folder where the reference images for training the model are located and match the names in the "image" column of the Train.csv dataset. Link here: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/1/folders/1FnZZ-0BKrQsqf175Z4iL4lVUUuavyWJ5
  • /test_images: is the folder where the reference images for testing the model and making the predictions to send to the platform are located. The images found there match the names in the "image" column of the Test.csv dataset. Link here: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/1/folders/149dPpgpFA-_Gjh-EJm61Typhh5yiGXqf
  • In the final stage of the competition, the final set of images will be revealed, which will serve as your best model, make a single prediction, and serve as the final score for the private leaderboard. Please keep an eye on this paragraph, as once we enter the final stage of the competition we will reveal that link here. 


Submission File

For each "id" in the Test.csv set, you must predict the label(s) for the target variable "labels". The file must contain a header and have the following format:

id,labels
1,healthy
2,frog_eye_leaf_spot
3,scab
4,rust
5,rust
6,scab
7,scab
...
463,healthy
464,frog_eye_leaf_spot
465,scab
466,rust

For this competition stage, you need to send your submission file with this details:

# of columns: 2
Column names: id,labels
# of rows: 467

    Hi guys!
    I have this error when I try to submit my model
    Any ideas how I can fix that?

    """ Error: You have the following error in your submission file
    * Scientific notation: The system does not allow scientific notation values similar or equal to this syntax: '5.54538E+11'
    Please make sure your file is correct and run the submission again. """
