Moscow, October 24, 2023. The hackathon kicked off on Friday, October 20, and concluded by Sunday evening, October 22. During the 48 hours of the competition, the teams had to develop machine learning models and solve one of two problems of determining the availability of goods on shelves at no-sales intervals using the GoodsForecast.OSA industrial toolkit. 

The solutions presented by the teams were evaluated in terms of the quality and workability of the proposed models. The most promising developments of the finalists will undergo AV testes in real conditions, in Dixie chain stores. The following team were the best, in the opinion of the jury:
  • Team 2, which was best at building a model without using the out-of-shelf probability estimate available in the data mart.

Each of the two winning teams received a cash prize of RUB 100 thousand.
