Data mining competition

FedCSIS 2023 Challenge: Cybersecurity Threat Detection in the Behavior of IoT Devices is the 9th data science competition in the series. This year, the task is related to cybersecurity – participants will construct scoring models to detect anomalous operating system behavior of IoT devices under attack. The challenge is sponsored by Łukasiewicz Research Network – Institute of Innovative Technologies EMAG and EFIGO sp. z o.o. companies.

The competition is held at the KnowledgePit online platform managed by QED Software – the company which is specialized in the development and deployment of innovative AI / ML / Big Data products and solutions.


Authors of the top-ranked solutions (based on the final evaluation scores) will be awarded prizes funded by the Sponsors:

  • 1000 USD for the winning solution + 600 EUR for one FedCSIS 2023 registration
  • 500 USD for the 2nd place solution + 600 EUR for one FedCSIS 2023 registration
