Children’s National Hospital, NIH launch COVID-19 diagnostics AI challenge


Washington, D.C.-based Children’s National Hospital is partnering with the National Institutes of Health and tech firm NVIDIA to launch a challenge in which participants will develop artificial intelligence tools to improve the detection of COVID-19 in the lungs, the hospital announced Jan. 7.

Participants in the COVID-19 Lung CT Lesion Segmentation Grand Challenge will use a multi-institutional, multinational NIH dataset that houses data on patients with a diverse range of age, gender and disease severity to create AI-powered imaging models to help clinicians better identify and treat COVID-19 infection in patients' lungs.

Participants whose algorithms win the challenge will have the opportunity to partner with hospitals to further study their imaging model's efficacy in identifying COVID-19 infection in the lungs.
