The AutoICE Competition

November 23, 2022 - April 17, 2023. 

The winning team will be awarded a cash prize of €3,000. The teams in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th place will receive “AI4EO points” that can be used to assemble their prize bundle from the prize catalogue. Resources will be provided to assist all participants during the challenge, such as tutorials and code repositories that will be essential to their project, and access to machine learning computing resources.

The Norwegian Computing Center, the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI), the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Polar View, Nansen Environmental Remote Sensing Center (NERSC) and ESA (European Space Agency), have created a challenge to bring together AI and Earth Observation players to address “automated sea ice mapping” from Sentinel-1 SAR data.

Call for Papers-First international symposium on the Tsetlin machine (ISTM 2022)


20-21 June, 2022, Grimstad Norway.


The emerging paradigm of Tsetlin machines makes a fundamental shift from arithmetic-based to logic-based machine learning. At the core, finite state machines, based on learning automata, learn patterns using logical clauses, and these constitute a global description of the task learnt. In this way, the Tsetlin machine introduces the concept of logical interpretable learning, where both the learned model and the process of learning are easy to follow and explain. As a result, it reduces the expertise needed to apply ML techniques efficiently in various domains. The paradigm has enabled competitive accuracy, scalability, memory footprint, inference speed, and energy consumption across diverse tasks, including classification, convolution, regression, natural language processing (NLP), and speech understanding.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

• Tsetlin Machines

• Learning automata

• Novel AI Algorithms

• Explainable and Interpretable AI

• Energy-efficient AI Systems Design

• New AI Applications including signal and image processing

• Intelligent Data Preprocessing


Important Dates

• Paper Submission deadline: March 4, 2022

• Notification to authors: April 22, 2022

• Camera-ready submission deadline: May 20, 2022
