Machine learning contest from Amazon

Here is what I got from Ken Montanez, from Amazon, via Mahout mailing list:

Amazon's Information Security Organization partnered with IEEE to put on a Machine Learning Competition for their upcoming MLSP 2012 International Workshop in Spain.
Amazon provided real industry data to give competitors the opportunity to work with real world data.The competition deadline is May 14, 2012.Link Website: http://mlsp2012.conwiz.dk, under the 'MLSP Competition' menu option.
Have fun!Ken-- Ken Montanez Software Engineering Manager Security Platform

It seems the goal of the competition is binary classification of user access to resources, to either allow or deny access. The data is explained here. Anyway for us it is always interesting to obtain real data!
