Challenge Discussion

Please see the slides and the challenge summary paper for that. We congratulate all the winners! For the UAV-based Maritime Object Detection challenge, due to Covid measures, only one of the three best winning teams could attend in-person. Three teams won a GPU each, sponsored by Sentient-Vision. The following are Qiming Zhang, Lars Sommer (right) and Hangyue Zhao from the first, second and third team, congratulations!
