Shared Tasks

2 min read

NFDI4DS organizes interactive events, such as hackathons and shared tasks, that attract the data science and AI community.

Shared Tasks provide a framework for scientifically exciting and challenging tasks for the NFDI4DS community.

NFDI4DS is currently organizing an extensive line-up of Shared Tasks. It provides each shared task together with a dataset. Currently, a number of shared tasks are running in the context of well-known events.
