🚨 Deadline Extension

:bangbang: We have an important update regarding the Visual Product Recognition Challenge. After careful consideration, we have decided to extend the deadline for the challenge by one month to April 16, 2023. We hope this extension gives participants more time to create more accurate and exciting solutions. Additionally, note that the deadline for the publication of training datasets is extended by one month to April 9.

:muscle: We want to give our participants the best chance to showcase their skills; we believe this extension will allow for that. So keep working hard and stay motivated; we can’t wait to see your final submissions!

:bank: Also, as previously announced, the challenge winners will be invited to present their solutions at the Machines Can See Summit (MCS) in Dubai in early May 2023. More information about the summit will be announced in March, so stay tuned.

:partying_face: Finally, potential winners will be contacted on April 19th, 2023 via email. We wish all participants the best of luck and can’t wait to see what you come up with!

I don’t see a dedicated thread so can you clarify where we should declare used dataset by April, 9th?

Also on Products-10k page (Large scale product recognition challenge) it is said:
β€œThe database can only be used for non-commercial research and educational purposes.”, so does it mean, dataset with any license can be used as long as it is public?


@snehananavati Can you comment on my previous post and also clarify, where we should post additional datasets?

Hello @tetelias, I have forwarded the query to the organisers and awaiting their response. I’ll update you as soon as I have their response. Appreciate your patience.
