NVIDIA Backs Data Science Bowl to Fight Heart Disease

Doctors diagnose someone with Cardiovascular disease every 43 seconds so finding new and better ways to speed the diagnosis of heart disease couldn’t be more important.

In collaboration with Booz Allen Hamilton, Kaggle and the National Institutes of Health, NVIDIA is pleased to support the second annual Data Science Bowl competition.

Feature 4During the 90-day competition, teams of data scientists will develop machine learning algorithms to analyze a thousand MRI images of real patients to create a system that can automatically identify early indicators of heart disease.

The team with the most accurate algorithm will win $125,000.

In addition to the prize money, NVIDIA will also provide the top three teams with free passes to the 2016 GPU Technology Conference where they will have the opportunity to share their work with leading scientists and researchers in deep learning, medical imaging and other fields.
