Avito Demand Prediction Challenge: open solution

This is an open solution to the Avito Demand Prediction Challenge.

More competitions 🎇

Check collection of public projects 🎁, where you can find multiple Kaggle competitions with code, experiments and outputs.

The goal

Create (entirely) open solution to this competition. We are opening not only the code, but also the process of creating it. Rules are simple:

  • Clean code and extendable solution are - in the long run - much better than current public LB position
  • This solution should - by itself - establish solid benchmark, as well as provide good base for your custom ideas and experiments.


In this open source solution you will find references to the It is free platform for community Users, which we use daily to keep track of our experiments. Please note that using is not necessary to proceed with this solution. You may run it as plain Python script 😉.


  1. clone this repository: git clone
  2. install requirements
  3. register to Neptune (if you wish to use it)
  4. update neptune.yaml configuration file with your data filepaths
  5. run experiment
  • with neptune:
$ neptune login
$ neptune experiment run --config neptune.yaml -- train_evaluate_predict --pipeline_name main

collect submit from /output/solution-1 directory.

  • with pure python:
$ python -- train_evaluate_predict --pipeline_name main

collect submit from experiment_dir directory that was specified in neptune.yaml
