Health Data Challenge: 3rd place for team “SBG3”
In the 24-hour Health Data Challenge, 15 teams with a total of 49 participants took on the challenge of using their technological skills and solving questions from the healthcare sector with the help of “Deep Learning”, “Artificial Intelligence” and other data analysis methods.
The three best teams were filtered out in a two-stage jury process. Third place behind Med Uni Vienna and HTL Sengergasse went to “Team SBG3”, which combined the data science expertise of three Salzburg institutions:
Christina Halmich (Salzburg Research), Devender Kumar (Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Digital Health and Prevention) and Konstantin Emil Thiel (Paracelsus Medical Private University).
The three Salzburg data experts calculated the placement of specialist centres: where in Austria specialist centres with the respective specialties should be located.
“The results of the Health Data Challenge show that highly complex questions can be answered in a short time and that innovative data analysis methods can offer significant added value for the management of the healthcare system and for patients,” congratulates Walter Ruck, President of the Vienna Chamber of Commerce.
The HTL Spengergasse, IHS, Complexity Science Hub, Med Uni Wien, Gradient Zero, Dialogic, AW Software & Technologie GmbH, Gepardec, Salzburg Research, Ludwig Boltzmann Institute and Paracelsus Medical University Salzburg took on the challenge.
