2022-2023 Army Deep Green - Phase II Registration (09 January to 01 March 2023)
With Phase 1 complete as of September 30, 2022, this Call for Participants pertains to the next iteration of the competition. This Deep Green DS & AI Challenge Phase II is planned to run from January 9 to July 28, 2023, using multiple tracks for the Computer Vision and LiDAR models. Phase II will give competitors the option to use either the CV data, LiDAR data, or both datasets to build a model. The highest scoring model created from this challenge will be used as a baseline performance prototype for further development on Army autonomous vehicle systems. The AIMM ERP will evaluate models based on quantitative metrics. Non-monetary awards have been authorized for the winning teams.
The 2022-23 Deep Green DS & AI Competition will be open to individuals and teams who are interested in Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Computer Vision, and autonomous systems. This competition will aid in improving the competitor’s ability in scientific research and development of autonomous systems. Eligible individuals who can join the competition include current Government civilian or military personnel or a representative of a Non-Federal Entity (NFE) with an existing Government relationship. A team signup sheet will be hosted by OBT to support individuals to form teams to work collaboratively. Each team will have a single point of contact designated as the Team Captain that must be identified with OBT.
All participants are required to be US citizens. There are no restrictions/requirements for Government only teams for participation. For NFE teams, the team captain/liaison must be a Government employee, military or civilian, and is responsible for ensuring there is an existing, valid legal authority supporting the involvement of the NFE representative.
