Dear picekl,

Please can you email us at zindi@zindi.africa.

Any news regarding data leaks? Will orgs acknoweldge it?

"Thank you for your email. We are looking into this.

Best regards,

The Zindi team"

Dear Zindians,

We acknowledge that this is not an ideal situation, so please accept our apologies to the whole Zindi community. Zindi is still a young platform, and we are learning and trying to be better with every challenge we release.

We have updated the reference file to exclude the data leak. Over the next 48 hours your scores might change as we rescore your submissions based on the new reference files.

You can still use the Sample Submission as a template to submit as the scoring system will only score the IDs in the updated reference file.

Please note that you cannot use file metadata such as EXIF data. This is a computer vision, machine learning challenge. If you are in the top 3 of this challenge you will be required to submit your code for validation.

Thank you for keeping us accountable, and for helping to make Zindi better. We couldn’t do it without you.

The Zindi team
