Hi there! been reading through the rules, some doubts still.
-Think external data isnt allowed, but what about model checkpoints? Arent they also external data? If a team grabs a external trained model checkpoint and use that? And if they train that one externally with similar data? Not easy to reason about.
-Can manual curation of provided data exist? ex:fixing labels, manual classification,etc. So it becomes kind of external data also, produced by team during competition.
-Would like to confirm that for winning/prizes submission must be exactly replicated through submitted code execution, and if so, any time/resource constraints? (gpus,etc)
-Related to previous one, assuming manual labelling/adjusting of submission predictions isnt allowed, correct?
much thanks, good luck to everyone!
