CCF Big Data &Computing Intelligence Contest (CCF BDCI) is an international challenge contest of intelligent algorithm, innovative application and big data system launched by Task Force on Big Data of China Computer Federation in 2013. It is one of the most influential events in the field of big data and AI across the world. The 2019 CCF BDCI is directed by the Computer Specialty Teaching Steering Committee of the Ministry of Education, the Department of Information Science of National Natural Science Foundation of China and the Zhengzhou People’s Government. It’s sponsored by the China Computer Federation and jointly organized by the Zhengdong New District Management Committee of Zhengzhou City, the Yiban Development Center of the Ministry of Education, CCF Task Force on Big Data, Oceania Association for Computer Research and Education and DataFountain.
Since its inception in 2013, the contest has been successfully held for six sessions, witnessing the continuous guidance from the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the National Natural Science Foundation of China and other national ministries and commissions. It also enjoys extensive support from local governments in Beijing, Qingdao, Changshu, Shenyang, and Zhengzhou. The involvement of more than 100 top experts in China, including academician Mei Hong and academician Li Guojie, has attracted 60,000 + people from 1,500+ universities and research institutes and 1,800+ enterprises and institutions across 25 countries to engage in this event. CCF BDCI Contest has become the banner of big data and AI events in China due to its high authority, strong professionalism, outstanding innovation and profound integration of industry, education and research.
In 2019, the 7th CCF BDCI Contest will continue to honor its original intention.

赛题方向 Direction of the contest questions
The contest involves “four tracks”: algorithm, scheme, system and training. They are used to evaluate the contestants’ algorithmic ability, applied innovation ability, basic system optimization and practical application ability. The algorithm track is named exclusively by ZHONGYUAN BANK CO., LTD.
算法赛道 ZHONGYUAN BANK - Algorithm：
9 questions included. Algorithm contest adopts real-time online scoring approach in which participants are required to optimize specific metrics in financial, e-commerce, industrial and other scenarios or user behaviors through an Algorithmic Model. This is mainly to solve the difficulties and pain points arising in the process of industrial development.
2 questions included. The scheme contest adopts the on-site solution demonstration and scoring approach in which the contestants deliver their complete creative solution and works based on the data and open-ended questions provided by enterprises. In this contest, the innovation and practical application value of schemes provided by participants are mainly examined.
2 questions included. System contest adopts a regularly collective evaluation approach that requires participants to improve their system optimization for a given data or environment by solving a system solution. The contestants need to use their creativity to solve the system problems.
7 questions included. The training contest applies the online real-time scoring approach. Contestants need to carry out the model implementation and the algorithm optimization through the basic algorithm model, for the purposes of facilitating teaching practice in colleges and universities, strengthening students’ practicing skills and improving the algorithm.
