2nd International Competition of Data Analysis by Intelligent Techniques

In 1996 ERUDIT organized the first international competition for signal analysis and processing
by intelligent techniques. As a result of the very successful progress of this competition
concerning the public interest, the number of participants, and the quality of solutions, a
follow up will take place in 1998. The competition has two problem tasks to solve for the
participant, which are highly interesting and actual from the industrial and scientific point of

Problem 1: Condition monitoring based on forecasting of vibrational signals
The first is a technical problem in the area of process modelling for the condition monitoring
of machinery as well as the prediction of quality parameters of a product or process.

Problem 2: Customer classification for business applications
The other task is a classification problem in the business area to get an optimal matching of
requirements to different customers groups. The competition again focuses on benchmarking of
competitive techniques like fuzzy logic, neural networks and advanced mathematical statistics to
demonstrate the efficiency of the respective research issue and results of the different
disciplines. The competition should support the comparison of the relevance of the different
approaches, give the participants the chance to presenting their own methods and be a unique
opportunity for the suppliers of the data to get an overview of possible solution approaches.

The detailed problem descriptions and the data for the analysis of the problems
can be downloaded on WWW:

There you will also find further information on the deadlines, the prizes and the referee
procedure. The deadline for submission of the solutions is April 30, 1998.

Interested persons, who have no WWW access should contact the ERUDIT Service Center to obtain
