    The evaluation metric used was added to the Data Breakdown section.


In a world where most services are available online, identity verification is crucial to ensure that only real individuals can access and use these services. However, with the rise of generative AI, fake identities can be easily created using sophisticated algorithms. This has led to an increase in identity fraud, as fake identities can be used to gain access to online services and commit fraudulent activities.

To address this issue, a leading tech company is looking for an algorithm that can accurately distinguish between real and fake profile photos produced by generative AI. This machine learning competition is open to participants from all over the world, challenging them to develop a model that can identify a fake photo created by AI. The winning model might be integrated into the company's online services, helping to prevent identity fraud and protect the integrity of online transactions.

Through this competition, participants have the opportunity to use their machine-learning skills to address a critical issue in today's online world, contributing to the development of more secure and reliable online services for everyone.

The goal of this competition is to develop a model that can identify a fake photo created by AI.

  • 1st Prize: $1,500

  • Winners Announced (Subject to change based on submission results): 28 July 2023
Data Breakdown

The goal of this competition is to develop a model that can identify a fake photo created by AI.

To build your machine learning model, we have provided the following datasets:

  1. train.csv: file to train your machine learning model (labels: target variable with 0 being 'real' and 1 being 'fake')
  2. test.csv: file that can be used to test how well your model performs on unseen data. This is the file you're going to make predictions on with your trained model and create a submission file.
  3. solution_format: Example of the format that the submission file needs to be in to be properly scored

All the images in the datasets are 20 x 20 x 3 (channels). The underlying data is all processed so you cannot convert them back to the original images. The goal of this competition is to predict the ‘labels’ column using the data provided.

NOTE: You may upload a submission file up to 5 times a day.

The evaluation metric used is F1 score.

Final competition results are based on the Private Leaderboard results, and the winner will be the user at the top of the Private Leaderboard.

  1. This competition is governed by the following Terms of Participation. Participants must agree to and comply with these Terms to participate.
  2. Users can make a maximum number of 5 submissions per day. If users want to submit new files after making 5 submissions in a day, they will have to wait until the following day to do so. Please keep this in mind when uploading a submission.csv file. Any attempt to circumvent stated limits will result in disqualification.
  3. The use of external datasets is not allowed.
  4. Uploading the competition dataset to other websites is not allowed. Users who do not comply with this rule will be disqualified.
  5. A competition prize will be awarded after we have received, successfully executed, and confirmed the validity of both the code and the solution (See 6.). Once winners are announced and our team reaches out to them, the winners must provide the following by July 9, 2023, to be qualified as a competition winner and receive their prize:
    1. All source files required to preprocess the data
    2. All source files required to build, train and make predictions with the model using the processed data
    3. A requirements.txt (or equivalent) file indicating all the required libraries and their versions as needed
    4. A ReadMe file containing the following:
      1. Clear and unambiguous instructions on how to reproduce the predictions from start to finish including data pre-processing, feature extraction, model training, and predictions generation
      2. Environment details regarding where the model was developed and trained, including OS, memory (RAM), disk space, CPU/GPU used, and any required environment configurations required to execute the code
      3. Clear answers to the following questions:
        1. Which data files are being used?
        2. How are these files processed?
        3. What is the algorithm used and what are its main hyperparameters?
        4. Any other comments considered relevant to understanding and using the model
  6. The submitted solution should be able to generate exactly the same output that gives the corresponding score on the leaderboard. If the score obtained from the code is different from what’s shown on the leaderboard, the new score will be used for the final rankings unless a logical explanation is provided. Please make sure to set the seed or random_state etc. so we can obtain the same result from your code.
  7. The final submission has to be selected manually before the end of the competition (you can select up to 2), or else it will be selected automatically based on your highest public score.
  8. In order to be eligible for the prize, the competition winner must agree to transfer to the Host the relevant transferee of rights in such Competition all transferable rights, such as copyrights, rights to obtain patents and know-how, etc. in and to all analysis and prediction results, reports, analysis and prediction model, algorithm, source code and documentation for the model reproducibility, etc., and the Submissions contained in the Final Submissions.
  9. Any prize awards are subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Terms of Participation. All decisions of bitgrit will be final and binding on all matters relating to this Competition.
  10. Payments to winners may be subject to local, state, federal and foreign tax reporting and withholding requirements.
  11. If two or more participants have the same score on the leaderboard, the participant who submitted the winning file first will be considered the winner.
  12. All submissions must be made individually; no teams are allowed in this competition. Users who do not comply with this rule will be immediately disqualified in the case that we find the same or very similar scores and/or uploaded solutions.
  13. Any Participant shall delete the Company-Provided Information immediately after the completion of a Competition.
