Welcome to AutoML Decathlon!

The AutoML Decathlon is a competition that will evaluate the performance of participants' AutoML methods on carefully curated sets of tasks with an appropriate level of difficulty and coverage in application domain, size, and input/output characteristics.

At the start of the competition we will release 10 public development tasks that vary in their domain (including image, finance timeseries, audio, and natural sciences), problem type (including regression, single-label, and multi-label classification), and scale (ranging from several thousands to hundreds of thousands of observations). These public tasks will be representative of (but distinct from) the final set of test tasks on which participants' AutoML methods will be ultimately evaluated on at the conclusion of the competition. For more background, see our blog post.

A prize of $15,000 will be awarded to the winning team. We will also offer smaller cash prizes for best performance on certain subsets of tasks, to be announced soon! See the competition description for details.

Current Leaderboard

Currently the submission by competitor 'euxhenh' has the best overall performance. We will continue to update this leaderboard as more baselines are added and more participant methods are received. Go to the CodaLab page to learn details, make your submission, and beat the current best methods!
