Datasets & Competitions

Morse code is a system of communication using dots and dashes to represent numbers, letters and symbols. For example, the letter 'B' is represented as a dash followed by 3 dots, i.e. "–...". The dataset used in this competition is synthetically generated, and mimics a human writing dots and dashes on a piece of paper. In this sense, it is like a 1-dimensional version of an image represented by numeric pixel values. The challenge is to classify the resulting 1-dimensional input into 1 out of 64 classes which represent various letter, numbers and symbols.

We present two synthetic datasets on classification of Morse code symbols for supervised machine learning problems, in particular, neural networks. The linked Github page has algorithms for generating a family of such datasets of varying difficulty. The datasets are spatially one-dimensional and have a small number of input features, leading to high density of input information content. This makes them particularly challenging when implementing network complexity reduction methods.
