I am joining the competition a little later than most I assume, but I had a question regarding the significance of the SS (start of the study period) and ES (end of the study period) for the ML approach.
As I understand it, these labels are simply meant to indicate the first and last time indices for each object during the observation period but they have no reflection of the satellite’s behavior. Therefore, any machine learning based approach will be faulty and the performance metrics will not be an accurate representation of the model’s ability to detect the 3 maneuver movement node labels (ID, AD, and IK). Could you provide insight into how these 2 nodes correlate to behavior patterns?
Thank you in advance,
