    Problem Updates And Notes

    Problem C: THE DATE FLIES PROVIDED CONTAIN THE ONLY DATA YOU SHOULD USE FOR THIS PROBLEM
    General background data, such as that found in an atlas, an encyclopedia, or other standard reference may be used if documented. This might include elevation, climate, or other information. Additional data from Washington state on Asian hornets similar to what was provided in the spreadsheet is explicitly not allowed; in particular adding additional observations from the state website is prohibited. A reasonable number of additional and documented images to assist in training an algorithm is allowed, similar to how dictionary data was allowed in the text analysis problem last year. Contestants should explicitly explain where they got the information and how it was used.

    Problem D:
    The "data_influence" data set and "influence_data" dataset are the same file, named: “influence_data.csv”
    The similarity data will be the measures that you will develop from the influence data set.
