Data Mining Contest: "Road Traffic Prediction for Intelligent GPS

Web page:
Started: week ago
Ends: Sep 6th, 2010
Prizes: 5,000 USD

Over the last century, the number of cars engaged in vehicular traffic
in cities has increased rapidly, causing many difficulties for all
citizens: traffic jams, large and unpredictable communication delays,
pollution, etc. Excessive traffic became a civilization problem that
affects everyone who lives in a city of 50,000 people or more,
anywhere in the world. Complexity of processes that stand behind
traffic flow is so large, that only data mining algorithms may bring
efficient solutions to these problems.

The task of this year's ICDM Data Mining Contest is to predict city
road traffic for the purpose of intelligent driver navigation and
improved journey planning. The three contest problems are related to
congestion forecasting, modeling of traffic jams, and smart navigation
based on real-time GPS monitoring. The competition is organized on data mining platform. Prizes worth $5,000 in total will be
awarded to the winners. Everyone is welcome to participate. More

Please forward to your colleagues and students.
