We are happy to announce the winners of the first part of 15th ECML PKDD Discovery Challenge. In total 17 teams participated in the competition, setting new standards for the new recommendation task of recommending given names. A broad variety of recommendation techniques has been applied and adapted to this new kind of data, ranging from classical collaborative filtering approaches and association rule mining to advanced factorization machines.

Although the challenge’s evaluation scores indicate a leadership, the results are very close. At the workshop we will present and discuss a thorough evaluation and comparison of the different recommendations.

We are looking forward to see different recommender systems in the online challenge!

As the offline challenge has ended and the online challenge not yet started, we had a short look at your submitted result files. Though we only saw what was recommended, we already know that completely different approaches for the name recommendation task were applied. So we are very much looking forward to reading your papers and getting an impression of all the different pre processing and recommendation systems.

After passing the reviewing process, all papers of participants of the challenge’s workshop will be published in the workshop proceedings (for details, have a look at the workshop description). The workshop will take place on September 27th, that is, on the last conference day.

The introduction of the workshop proceedings will contain an introduction to the overall setup of the challenge as well as a detailed task description. You can therefore skip these details in your paper and just refer to the introduction.

If you have further questions concerning your workshop submission, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Happy letter typing!

There it is, our last public leaderboard. Team ‘uefs.br’ did an awesome job again and increased its score by 12 %! The other teams did also a good job increasing their scores and, who knows, maybe they are on top on the final non-public leaderboard. So, who dares to submit new results? Faites vos jeux!

P.S.: The submission for your workshop paper is open!
P.P.S.: Don’t miss the chance to test your recommender in the online challenge!

The first version of the 15th leaderboards was calculated witch switched results. The current scores where handles as the recent ones and vise versa. This was the reason why no score has changed, but the rank arrows indicated change.
We apologize for this inconvenience and wish you good luck for the board of tomorrow (which will be handled with maximum care of course).

We are terribly sorry about this! Nevertheless: Keep on crunching! Meanwhile: Why not play around with the short coming name recommendation feature in Nameling: http://beta.nameling.net/name/John (look at the dynamically loaded recommendation box on the sidebar). Currently, there is a NameRank-Based recommender and a dummy recommender integrated – which one did you get? ;-)

I’m finishing the UI integration of the recommender during this and the next week – and I’m looking forward to integrate your recommendations in the system!

During this week, we announced that there will be a new leader. This tweet referred to team “uefs.br”, which did an awesome job with their recommendation. However, the prediction of a new leader was based on the submission that we received till Wednesday, but team “all your base” managed to improve their result even more.

As the deadline of the offline challenge steadily approaches, we will publish additional leaderboards within the next ten days. Altogether, four leaderboards will be published until the end of the offline challenge:

  • Friday, June 21st
  • Monday, June 24th
  • Wednesday, June 26th
  • Friday, June 28th

The leaderboard will be based on the latest submissions until 14:00h (CET) of the respective date. Your final submission is due on July 1st, 23:59h (HAST – Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time).
