Considition 2022 is presented by Consid and Axfoundation. In this year’s challenge, you will develop an algorithm contributing to a more sustainable future for circular e-commerce deliveries and grocery shopping, with focus on sustainable use of shopping bags.
In the grocery and growing e-commerce sector, a very large amount of plastic and paper bags are utilized daily. However, these are not reused or recycled to the extent required in a circular economy. This leads to no-sustainable effects on both our planet and economy, and additionally to customer frustration.
Today, better alternatives are available. A more circular and resource-efficient process is needed, which Considition 2022 in collaboration with Axfoundation is all about.
What’s the challenge about?
Your task is to develop an algorithm that optimize the use of plastic and paper bags based on real life data to achieve the most efficient and environmentally friendly solution. The end goal is to achieve a circular economy that benefits the environment, customers, and companies.
The more precise technical specification of what data that will be provided and what your algorithm will have to perform will be made available in late October. The practice period (when data sets, starter kits and practice scenarios are released) begins on November 1st.
What can you win?
The winning team will go on an extraordinary weekend trip to Prague, to learn more about ML, AI & sustainability at Europe’s biggest conference on ML, AI and deep learning – Machine Learning Prague 2023.
In addition to the first prize, additional prizes to e.g. the second place, third place, best single player, best student team, most creative solution, best worst algorithm and more are up for grabs.
The prize pool is worth about $6000 in total. Learn more about the prize pool here.
