RPE-004: The Needles in the Haystack

How difficult is it to actually find a needle in a haystack? We are going to find out. On February 26-28, DreamPort plans to execute an RPE competition where participants design and implement a solution for automatically identifying the most important assets (needles) on the DreamPort HQ network (haystack) without any prior human knowledge. HQ is the network we used and will continue to use in multiple RPE.
