Post this competition, is it necessary for all the participants to submit Jupyter Notebooks using Layer Framework for Model Training and Prediction?
If you want to win a prize, you have to use Layer.
Post this competition I don't think it's required. We at Layer were hoping that participants find it useful to track their experiments in Layer and that Layer projects can become pieces of their portfolio, but we understand not everybody might want to explore these options.
Have fun with your submission!
