FUZZ-IEEE Explainable Energy Prediction Competition

My PhD student Dilini Sewwandi Rajapaksha and I made first place in the FUZZ-IEEE Explainable Energy Prediction Competition. The winners were announced at the IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems, Luxembourg, 2021.

We proposed a novel algorithm to provide Local Interpretable Model-agnostic Rule-based Explanations for Forecasting, a paper and more descriptions will be available hopefully soon.

IEEE-CIS Technical Challenge on Predict+Optimize for Renewable Energy Scheduling

We’ve just launched the IEEE-CIS Technical Challenge on Predict+Optimize for Renewable Energy Scheduling, with US$20k in prize money. You’ll need to forecast energy demand and solar power production for a couple of buildings on the Monash Clayton campus, and then use the forecasts to optimally schedule lectures and battery charging/discharging. We’re looking forward to your great submissions!
