The Open Source Imaging Consortium (OSIC) is proud to partner with Kaggle to host the first ever computational challenge for interstitial lung diseases: The OSIC Pulmonary Fibrosis Progression Challenge. A $55,000 prize will be offered to the Kaggle investigator(s) who devises the highest performing algorithm.
Kaggle is a global online competition platform made up of data scientists and machine learning practitioners designed to allow users to publish data and create data science challenges. With well over 5,000,000 registered users (Kagglers), from 250 different countries, Kaggle competitions have resulted in many successful programs including advancing medical research in HIV and cancer, as well as creating forecasting models for traffic and driving advances in neural networks.
The challenge has recently ended. Make sure to follow us on Twitter at @OSICild to stay up-to-date on everything Kaggle (including finding out who the winners are) and OSIC related.
When you step into an intersection of fields, disciplines or cultures, you can combine existing concepts into a large number of extraordinary ideas."
