OK to use the data for research? How to cite?

Hi AICrowd,
the data from the learning 2 smell challenge is one of the few available labelled odorant datasets. Now that the challenge has completed, is it permitted to use the data in research and publish results obtained with it?

If so, how would one cite the data?

Thanks in advance,


Hi @michael_schmuker,

You will need to reach out to Firmenich for approval based on rules.

The participant agrees to use the Learning 2 Smell Challenge datasets exclusively for the purpose of participating in this competition. Any commercial, non-commercial or academic usage of the challenge datasets have to pre-approved by Firmenich.

Thanks for the lightning fast reply & sorry for bothering you with something I could have looked up myself :grimacing:

Best wishes,
