All day

The ML+X Community is thrilled to announce the 2023 Machine Learning Marathon (MLM23), and we invite you to be a part of this exciting event! Whether you're a seasoned machine learning (ML) practitioner or just starting your journey, this event promises a unique opportunity to learn, collaborate, and make meaningful contributions to exciting ML projects. 

How to Participate: Participants will form teams of 3-5 members and choose an ML challenge of their choice (see registration form for options). Teams will have 7-8 weeks to work together, leveraging compute resources provided by Kaggle. Each team member is expected to contribute at least 1 hour per week. Some challenges offer global recognition and prizes for top-performing teams. Locally, the ML+X team with the highest leaderboard ranking across all challenges may receive a $250 award ($50 gift card per team member)! 

Join as an ML Advisor: ML experts — this is your chance to pass on your wisdom! We are looking for volunteers to guide and support project teams throughout the marathon. Advisors will be expected to check in with their selected team at least once every two weeks.

Register (participants and advisors)! Don't miss your chance to be a part of the 2023 Machine Learning Marathon (MLM23), where you can learn, grow, and potentially win exciting prizes! Please fill out the registration form by 9am on Monday, 10/16, to guarantee your spot!
