Abstract

We summarize the data mining competition associated with IJCRS’15 conference – IJCRS’15 Data Challenge: Mining Data from Coal Mines, organized at Knowledge Pit web platform. The topic of this competition was related to the problem of active safety monitoring in underground corridors. In particular, the task was to design an efficient method of predicting dangerous concentrations of methane in longwalls of a Polish coal mine. We describe the scope and motivation for the competition. We also report the course of the contest and briefly discuss a few of the most interesting solutions submitted by participants. Finally, we reveal our plans for the future research within this important subject.

Keywords
