Dear Organizers,

Could you help me with the following problem? How are the predicted labels connected with the datetime?

For example, let's consider the row

datetime x segment_id, predicition 
2019-01-01 01:00:00 x S0B3CGQ,1  

Does 1 indicate that at least one incident occurs during the time interval [2019-01-01 00:00:01, 2019-01-01 01:00:00] or not?

Thank you!

I think the approach you mentioned is the case. That approach was utilized in a previous competition. But it will be nice to get confirmation from Zindi.

The previous challenge is Mtoto Child line. See excerpt below from the data page.

"The format of time_index is YYYYMMDDHH (year month day hour). For example, the calls associated with time_index 2016071300 would be the calls received between 12:00:00 am until 12:59:59 am on 13 July 2016."
