Topic of the competition: Recognition of activities carried out by first responders at a fire scene based on body sensor network readings

AAIA'15 Data Mining Competition: Tagging Firefighter Activities at a Fire Scene is a continuation of the last year's competition organized within the framework of International Symposium on Advances in Artificial Intelligence and Applications (AAIA'15, https://fedcsis.org/aaia). It is also an integral part of the 2nd Complex Events and Information Modelling workshop (CEIM'15 https://fedcsis.org/ceim) devoted to the fire protection engeneering. This time, the task is related to the problem of recognizing activities carried out by firefighters based on streams of information from body sensor networks. Prizes worth over 4,000 PLN will be awarded to the most successful teams. The contest is sponsored by Polish Information Processing Society (http://www.pti.org.pl/), with a support from University of Warsaw (http://www.mimuw.edu.pl/) and ICRA project (http://icra-project.org/).
