HAAFOR CHALLENGE 2019
 
This year challenge’s task is Predicting Missing Words in a Sentence. Last year’s topic was NER(Named Entity Recognition). This time you need to predict appropriate words for blanks in news articles. We encourage participants to develop algorithm, which can select the fittest words from a given list of words in order to fill out the blanks.
 
For example:
 
Q: Beyond the obvious clinical and regulatory risks, threats to drug pricing and profitability are the key potential drags on the sector. While it's unlikely that Medicare will come any closer to having [BLANK] power in 2016, there is some potential for headline risk from fresh political saber-rattling to induce weakness beyond what is already included. Consolidation in private payers and Medicare providers is a bigger concern, as the combined entities are likely to have better bargaining power.
 
A: negotiating
 
90,000 short news articles(Training Set) with blanks and correct answers will be provided in the beginning of HAAFOR challenge 2019. On Evaluation Day, we will provide additional 20,000 short news articles(Evaluation Set) without answers. You are supposed to submit the predicted words for Evaluation Set within 3 hours. HAAFOR expect this challenge to become a good opportunity for you to perform your optimal level of ability and potentiality.
