The Paris-Saclay CDS, Insitut Pasteur, and IESF are launching the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) classification event on RAMP.studio. ASD is a severe psychiatric disorder that affects 1 in 166 children. There is evidence that ASD is reflected in individuals brain networks and anatomy. Yet, it remains unclear how systematic these effects are and how large is their predictive power. The large cohort assembled here can bring some answers. Predicting autism from brain imaging will provide biomarkers and shed some light on the mechanisms of the pathology.
The goal of the challenge is to predict ASD (binary classification) from pre-processed structural and functional MRI on more than 2000 subjects.
The RAMP will run in competitive mode until at 20h (UTC) and in collaborative (open code) mode between and the closing ceremony on . The starting kit repo provides detailed instructions on how to start. You can sign up at the Autism RAMP event.PrizesThe Paris-Saclay CDS and IESF are sponsoring the competitive phase of the event:
- 1st prize 3000€
- 2nd prize 2000€
- 3rd prize 1000€
- from 4th to 10th place 500 €Launching hackathonBest regards,Balazs
