Dear Bioimage Analyst Colleagues!

We are organizing a competition to detect COVID-19 infection using a microscopy-based blood test!

This competition is not like the others: at the end of each week, the user on the top of the leaderboard will be able to upload their inference code, which we deploy and make it available for the public. The first model is already up and available to try at https://telesto.ai/competition/covid-19/model!

Our goal is to build a new kind of crowdsourcing platform for machine learning solutions. Instead of separating the model development from the deployment as the current/other competitions do it, we want to integrate it into the same development cycle. We aim to deploy winning solutions weekly to production, allowing the competitors to react to problems in deployment. Soon, we are aiming to launch competitions with weekly monetary rewards for the winners!

This competition is the first public test of our idea and we appreciate any feedback, feature request, or bug report!

Good luck and have fun in the competition! :slight_smile:

Cheers,

Tivadar Danka and the telesto.ai team
