The second round of TCO17 Marathon Competition AbstractWars started today. It will run for two weeks, and top 30 competitors will get points which then will be converted to t-shirts and trips to the finals (here are the rules). Besides, this round will have two Data Science Weekly Challenges associated with it (which I still have to come up with). I am the writer, enjoy! :-)

DS Weekly Challenge #7 for the first half of this round is: the person whose score at the Marathon Round 2 mid-point has fractional part* closest to the average of fractional parts of all the scores will get a TCO'17 t-shirt.

*Fractional part of the score will be defined as the last 5 digits of the score (due to the discreteness of the scoring function). I know MM challenges are getting more and more bizarre; for round 3 I'm seriously considering something that involves hashes and edit distances :-)
