Scores & Ranking

We compute for each of our evaluation criteria:

  • Generalization (average distance)
  • Generalization (hausdorff distance)

We ar ranking of the participant according to their performance (e.g. if there are 10 participants, the best performing algorithm gets 1 point and the worst performing algorithm gets 10 point). Each participant is therefore ranked 20 times. The final ranking will be the average of the individual rankings.
