Figuring Out How to Predict Seizures

The University of Melbourne, the U.S. National Institutes of Health, the American Epilepsy Society, and software company MathWorks have launched the Seizure Prediction Challenge, which challenges participants to analyze brain activity data to develop a method to predict seizures. Participants will have access to a database of brain activity data collected by NeuroVista, an electroencephalogram embedded inside the heads of epilepsy patients to monitor brain activity over a period of six months to three years. The challenge ends on November 21, 2016, and the participants that develop the best seizure-prediction algorithm will receive a $20,000 prize.
