Note: This is not the 2023 award, which was already claimed.

Background: The Vesuvius Challenge is a machine learning and computer vision competition to read the Herculaneum Papyri. In the first stage of the competition, a grand prize was awarded to a team who managed to make 5% of the scrolls readable, mostly through advances in ink detection. Stage 2 of the Challenge requires advances in autosegmentation, the process of digitally unfolding the scrolls, that would allow 90% of the scrolls to be read. Details TBD.
