NASA has opened a competition to anyone to build a model to automatically analyse mass spectrometry data collected for Mars exploration. The model should detect the presence of certain families of chemical compounds in data collected from performing evolved gas analysis on a set of analogue samples. The winning techniques may be used to help analyse data from Mars, and potentially even inform future designs for planetary mission instruments performing in situ analysis.

Full details of the competition can be found at https://www.herox.com/MarsSpectrometry
