PKSHA Algorithm Engineer Wins 3rd Place in Competition Hosted by Kaggle, the World’s Largest Data Science Community

PKSHA Technology Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Katsuya Uenoyama, hereinafter referred to as PKSHA) announced that at the Kaggle Days x Z by HP World Championship Final Event hosted by the world’s largest data science community “Kaggle”, We are pleased to announce that the team to which PKSHA’s algorithm engineer, Tomomu Iwai belongs, won the 3rd prize.
Award history
The Kaggle Days x Z by HP World Championship Final Event (hereinafter referred to as the “Competition”) will be held in Barcelona on October 28th and 29th, 2022, with 77 out of 5,321 participants participating in qualifying tournaments held around the world. However, we competed to see how highly accurate the model could be developed in a limited amount of time for the given task. A team of 4 people, including Tomomu Iwai, who is active as an algorithm engineer at PKSHA, won 3rd place in this competition, where 1.5% of all participants gathered. Iwai also won the highest award in the “mini-contest to propose a machine learning solution to solve the hunger problem in 40 minutes” attached to the event.
Under the vision of “co-evolution of people and software”, the PKSHA Group mainly implements solutions related to natural language processing, image recognition, machine learning / deep learning technology, and software through AI SaaS. . In order to solve complex social issues and develop software that continues to operate stably toward the realization of social implementation, engineers are required to have extremely advanced algorithm construction ability and solution proposal ability. At our company, engineers with world-class skills cultivated through various self-improvements, including Mr. Iwai, who won this year’s competition, are making every effort to create new algorithms and solve real-world problems.
