Expectations & Methods content

Given the success of the previous four M-Competitions, the considerable number of participants attracted, and the significant contributions made, fundamentally changing the field of forecasting, similar or even higher achievements are expected from the M5 Competition, that is aimed at the fast growing data science community which will have easy access to the M5 dataset, as it will be run using the Kaggle Platform. It is our expectation therefore, that the number of participants will be several thousands.
