Default competition to analyze anomalous ET signals

There must be more than just the 1 WOW signal received in the past 50y.

The data science "community" seems to have enough (usually needs
a truckload to even start an analysis) to start using machine
learning techniques to spot anything that may be a sign of an ET
technology signature.

Click on the link if you want to enter the comp to win $15k.
But maybe you just might just want to see how scientists are tackling
the problem or look at the dataset they have.

I havent done any work at kaggle for a few years so things might have
changed and files might not be as open to access to non-members as
they once were.

"Are we alone in the Universe?" As technology improves, we're finding new
and more powerful ways to seek answers to this perennial question.

In this competition, use your data science skills to help identify anomalous
signals in data from the Breakthrough Listen project, which uses the world's
most powerful telescopes to search for extraterrestrial intelligence.
Because there are no confirmed examples of alien signals, you'll train with
simulated signals.
Total Prizes: $15,000
Entry Deadline: July 21, 2021

Compete to find the most signals and maybe even help answer one of the
biggest questions in science.

Good luck,
