Artificial Intelligence Hackathon at SIO2020

The SIO announces the 1st Artificial Intelligence Hackathon to be held at the upcoming SIO meeting in New Orleans on 1 February 2020.

Motto: “From Code To Bedside”

The SIO Artificial Intelligence Hackathon is a 1 hour open session at the annual SIO meeting 2020 in New Orleans that will give selected teams the opportunity to pitch their AI-based research project proposals with high translational value to a judging panel composed of SIO research committee members and industry representatives on the criteria of healthcare impact, innovation, translatability to product, and presentation. The winning team will receive a $7000 seed grant. The invited teams will be given 5 minutes of time to pitch their project and propose an AI-based solution to a specific clinical problem in IO, followed by 1 minutes of Q/A by the judging panel. The proposal should have a high translational value and implementation should have immediate impact on cancer care in a multi-disciplinary setting.

Hackathon Pitches:  

Session: Saturday, 1 February, 4:15 pm-5:45 pm, Galerie 1/2/3, 2nd Floor.
