PAKDD2020 Alibaba AI Ops Competition

Organized by Alibaba and PAKDD2020 Singapore, the competition this year aims to predict large-scale disk failures for mega data centres.

Out of 1,173 teams from top universities, our I2R MI Team comprising of Liu Wei (Team Lead), Liu Pan and Xue Yang, has emerged Top 5, and is the only Singapore winning team in the PAKDD2020 Alibaba AI Ops Competition!

The Team developed a machine learning-based monitoring system that uses S.M.A.R.T data, a type of commonly-used Hard Disk Drive (HDD) monitoring data, to predict HDD failures.

**The Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (PAKDD) is one of the longest established and leading international conferences in the areas of data mining and knowledge discovery. It provides an international forum for researchers and industry practitioners to share their new ideas, original research results, and practical development experiences from all KDD related areas, including data mining, data warehousing, machine learning, artificial intelligence, databases, statistics, knowledge engineering, visualization, decision-making systems, and the emerging applications.
