Since Round 2 of the competition ended, I just wanted to say a big thanks to the AIcrowd team, and @shivam in particular, for all the help throughout the competition - especially in the last couple of days. Every error and stuck submission were resolved in time, most of them very quickly, so thanks for that!
The competition itself is loads of fun. As someone who has worked in the food image recognition field for a good couple of years now, it’s fantastic to see not just a benchmark for this field, but also a competition associated with it as well. This should help attract more interest, researchers and data scientists to the problem, which should in turn speed up progress.
Eager to see where this dataset and competition go in the future!
