What makes a good challenge?

Check out some our thoughts for partners on “What kind of problem is good for a competition?” (scroll down).

A good challenge will include four elements:

(1) Data*: What source(s) of data will competitors be able to use? What makes it interesting?
(2) Task: What is the problem? What are competitors expected to produce (as outputs) and use (as inputs)?
(3) Measurement: How will performance be objectively evaluated (ex. using a test set and accuracy metric)?
(4) Impact: Why can better algorithms make a difference? How could this algorithm be deployed to make a difference?

* Open data can be useful for practice competitions; however, if you use an open test set, make sure you include a strategy for discouraging cheating by looking up the “answers”.
