Submission + - DARPA awards $50K in shredded document prize (networkworld.com)

coondoggie writes: "The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency today said it took 33 days and 9,000 teams to solve its Shredder Challenge, but one team has prevailed: The 'All Your Shreds Are Belong to U.S.' team won the $50,000 prize. The All Your Shreds Are Belong to U.S' team of San Francisco used custom-coded, computer-vision algorithms to suggest fragment pairings to human assemblers for verification. In total, the winning team spent nearly 600 man-hours developing algorithms and piecing together the five challenge documents that were shredded into more than 10,000 pieces."
