Based on the 2017 GECCO industrial challenge an updated more advanced problem is provided. This year’s industrial partner again is Thüringer Fernwasserversorgung (TFW), which provides the real-world dataset used in this challenge. The goal of the GECCO 2018 Industrial Challenge is to develop an event detector to accurately predict any kinds of changes in a time series of drinking water composition data.

Highlights of the GECCO 2018 Industrial Challenge include:

  • Real-world Data: Real drinking-water time series are provided for training, testing, and assessing event detection methods.
  • Direct Link to Industry: The Thüringer Fernwasserversorgung will evaluate the winning submissions for an implementation in real-world applications. Moreover, a direct contact with the winning participants, who will keep all rights to their detection system, is highly appreciated by Thüringer Fernwasserversorgung.
  • Publication Possibilities: For the first time in GECCO history we are able to accept 2-page submissions for the GECCO Companion, thus publications are possible directly through competition participation.
