How are you and hope you are doing well, and guess you are super busy in doing all those evaluation tedious stuff tediously but happily, :-)
Finally our team finalized everything by the last second as usual, :-) personally I have a humble request for the final evaluation entries, I am not sure if it will cause a lot workload for you and other organizers if you can allow us to submit three final evaluation entries instead of only two entries in the future competitions?
Usually in each competition, we team individually applied different models with diversified levels of features datasets, then ensemble with the aggregating approaches like bagging, stacking etc., finally did some tuning process to target the highest score in the leader board while might bear the trade-off of overfitting. Therefore, as to the final evaluation submission strategy, it would be better if there can be three evaluation entries for the a bit risky tuning result, model ensemble result and individual model result accordingly.
I guess other team should roughly work on the same way, so I just give my five cents of this sincere and humble request for you and competition organizers' consideration for the future competitions. Even though it is a competition, but for us as Researchers, we are also keen on treating it as a research task to solve and explore the challenges for the industry needs.
We team did enjoy the whole competition journey very much, many thanks again for you and competition organizers' brilliant efforts in holding this competition, highly appreciated.
All the best wishes and best regards
Thanks! :-) I will keep that in mind for our next cybersecurity-related challenge (which I will announce quite soon).
