For all you Latin American deep learning practitioners , I wanted to let you know that last week Mercado Libre (where I work as a Machine Learning engineer) launched a NLP classification competition exclusively for Latin American countries*. The winner and runner-up will get tickets to Khipu, arguably the most important AI conference in LatAm to date, of the likes of DL Indaba.
It is a challenging problem with 2 languages, 1500+ classes and noisy labels. I hope many of you can show-off your skills in the competition!
And don’t hesitate to post any questions you may have in this thread .
*Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Mexico and Uruguay
