NewsLarge Text Compression Benchmark PinstaffTerrence Dorsey7-Jul-13 9:58 
This competition ranks lossless data compression programs by the compressed size (including the size of the decompression program) of the first 109 bytes of the XML text dump of the English version of Wikipedia on Mar. 3, 2006.... The goal of this benchmark is not to find the best overall compression program, but to encourage research in artificial intelligence and natural language processing (NLP). A fundamental problem in both NLP and text compression is modeling: the ability to distinguish between high probability strings like recognize speech and low probability strings like reckon eyes peach.... This is an open benchmark. Anyone may contribute results.
Compression improvements are eligible for the Hutter Prize, with 50,000 euros of funding.
