Find the Prettiest Poinsettia!
Registation closed

What is the challenge?

We are hosting a machine learning and computer vision competition to devise intelligent ways to find the “best” poinsettia. We will be looking at the height of the plant, color of the leaves, and “bushiness” among other attributes.

When is the hackathon?

It takes place the week of 14th December 2020.

2021 dates TBA.

How can I take part?

Our 2020 event has now finished! A full report of the results will be posted soon.


Bridge Farm Group, the leading UK producer of ornamental plants, flowers and herbs has allowed us to visit their state of the art facility in Spalding where they are growing over 1 million poinsettias to collect the images and data required to run this event. Find out more.
