THE CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT PARTICIPATED.
Final standings: congratulations to LA_Team!
The top teams, based on the median F1-micro score from 100 realizations of their models were:
|1||LA_Team (Mosser, de la Fuente)||0.6388||Boosted trees||Python||Notebook|
|2||PA Team (PetroAnalytix)||0.6250||Boosted trees||Python||Notebook|
|3||ispl (Bestagini, Tuparo, Lipari)||0.6231||Boosted trees||Python||Notebook|
|4||esaTeam (Earth Analytics)||0.6225||Boosted trees||Python||Notebook|
I have stochastic scores for other teams, and will continue to work through them, but it seems unlikely that these top teams will change at this point.
Welcome to the Geophysical Tutorial Machine Learning Contest 2016! Read all about the contest in the October 2016 issue of the magazine. Look for Brendon Hall's tutorial on lithology prediction with machine learning.

F1 scores of models against secret blind data in the STUART and CRAWFORD wells. The logs for those wells are available in the repo, but contestants do not have access to the facies.
** These are deterministic scores, the final standings depend on stochastic scores — see above **

We've never done anything like this before, so there's a good chance these rules will become clearer as we go. We aim to be fair at all times, and reserve the right to make judgment calls for dealing with unforeseen circumstances.
IMPORTANT: When this contest was first published, we asked you to hold the SHANKLE well blind. This is no longer necessary. You can use all the published wells in your training. Related: I am removing the file of predicted facies for the STUART and CRAWFORD wells, to reduce confusion — they are not actual facies, only those predicted by Brendon's first model.
- You must submit your result as code and we must be able to run your code.
- Entries will be scored by a comparison against known facies in the STUART and CRAWFORD wells, which do not have labels in the contest dataset. We will use the F1 cross-validation score. See issue #2 regarding this point. The scores in the 'leaderboard' reflect this.
- Where there is stochastic variance in the predictions, the median average of 100 realizations will be used as the cross-validation score. See issue #114 regarding this point. The scores in the leaderboard do not currently reflect this. Probably only the top entries will be scored in this way. [updated 23 Jan]
- The result we get with your code is the one that counts as your result.
- To make it more likely that we can run it, your code must be written in Python or R or Julia or Lua [updated 26 Oct].
- The contest is over at 23:59:59 UT (i.e. midnight in London, UK) on 31 January 2017. Pull requests made aftetr that time won't be eligible for the contest.
- If you can do even better with code you don't wish to share fully, that's really cool, nice work! But you can't enter it for the contest. We invite you to share your result through your blog or other channels... maybe a paper in The Leading Edge.
- This document and documents it links to will be the channel for communication of the leading solution and everything else about the contest.
- This document contains the rules. Our decision is final. No purchase necessary. Please exploit artificial intelligence responsibly.
Please note that the dataset is not openly licensed. We are working on this, but for now please treat it as proprietary. It is shared here exclusively for use on this problem, in this contest. We hope to have news about this in early 2017, if not before.
