Introduction

In this second episode of Epidemium RAMP, we focus on cancers of the digestive tract. We propose to build predictive models of the evolution of such cancers, to project their evolution over time and to reveal some of the determinants. As some cancers reach different organs, do they maintain epidemiological links? In particular, challengers will investigate the existence of statistical correlations between the epidemiology of a wide typology of cancer and mortality from digestive cancers. The goal of this challenge is to predict the different mortality rates of the cancers related to the digestive systems and to mine the different interactions these cancers might have with other types of cancers.
Rules
  • Submissions will open at (UTC) 2000-01-01 00:00:00
  • When you submit, your submission is sent to be trained automatically. The jobs may wait some time in a queue before being run so be patient.
  • Pending (untrained) and failing submissions can be resubmitted under the same name at an arbitrary frequency.
  • Once your submission is trained, it cannot be deleted or replaced.
  • After each succesfully trained submission, you have to wait 900s to resubmit.
  • The leaderboard is in "hidden" mode until (UTC) 2017-02-05 19:00:00 which means that all scores are visible, but the links pointing to the code of the participants are hidden. After (UTC) 2017-02-05 19:00:00, all submitted codes are public. You will be encouraged to look at and reuse each other's code.
