Clarification needed. Validation data usage.


Can we use the validation set in training, in other words, can we join together the training and the validation set and then make our own splits on this combined set? Or we must use the challenge-provided validation set only for the validation?

Thank You!

Hi @neurogenesis,

You can use both the training and validation sets in whatever way you choose, including for fitting your model and any splitting or cross-validation strategy. See the Phase 2 announcement for more details.
