Each year, data scientists and technology enthusiasts come together with a singular purpose: solve the problem.
We’re talking about tens of thousands of participants, often vying for a big $$$ prize and something much more intangible: a role in helping change the world.
It doesn’t get any bigger or better than that for these data warriors. Take a closer look at the possibilities ahead, all because of the Data Science Bowl and our passionate participants.

Spot Nuclei. Speed Cures.

April 16th, 2018|

The Challenge Imagine unleashing the power of artificial intelligence to automate a critical component of biomedical research, expediting life-saving research in the treatment of almost every disease from rare disorders to the common cold. This could soon be a reality, thanks to the 2018 Data Science Bowl® in which, [...]

Turning Machine Intelligence Against Lung Cancer

April 16th, 2017|

The Challenge In 2016 – 2017, competitors used anonymized, high-resolution lung scans from hundreds of patients provided by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), to create algorithms that can improve lung cancer screening technology. The participants created algorithms that can accurately determine when lesions in the lungs are cancerous and thereby [...]

Assessing Ocean Health at a Massive Speed & Scale

April 16th, 2015|

The Challenge The first-ever Data Science Bowl® challenged participants to examine more than 100,000 underwater images. The data was available thanks to sophisticated image capture methods pioneered by Hatfield Marine Science Center and their research partners. They were faced with volumes of information that would have taken years to manually analyze—data collected [...]
