Two-time Essay Competition winner and ARCathon participant Simon Ouellette discusses the intricacies of deep learning in the context of the ARC challenge.

The ARCathon evaluation is designed to be flexible and is deliberately based on Docker. Nevertheless, some have found the step of integrating their code into a Docker image a hurdle. For this reason, our ARCathon participant Taka has kindly published a repo with a ready-to-use Docker image. Fork this repo to submit your algorithms in the ARCathon with minimal hassle!
