The First TReNDS Neuroimaging Competition is Live!

Within only a few days, over 150 teams of neuroimagers and non-imagers alike have already entered this joint OHBM and IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) Data Challenge, which started on April 23rd and runs until June 29th. The competition features the largest normative dataset of its kind: there are 5 variables for simultaneous prediction (including age and other assessments), 3 types of features from 2 different modalities (functional and structural MRI scans) stratified over age, sex, and cognitive ability, all courtesy of the UK Biobank project. Prizes in the amount of $25,000 are being offered for participants to tackle a challenging task: build predictive models that are unbiased by site effects.

The Competitions Committee at the TReNDS Center expects this event will push the limits of current predictive technologies to help determine the translational value of the provided features for future clinical use. The dataset will be available only for the duration of the event. Find more about this unique opportunity here. The event also has support from the IEEE SPS Data Science Initiative, and the IEEE SPS Challenges and Data Collections Program.
