Contexte :

The COVID-19, also known as coronavirus disease 2019, is a viral illness caused by the SARS-CoV-2 strain of coronavirus. It originated in Wuhan, China in late 2019 and has since become a global pandemic, as declared by the WHO on March 11, 2020. Diagnosis of COVID-19 is typically done through RT-PCR testing, and chest X-rays can also be used to help with early detection of the disease.

Dataset :

It is a medical images directory structure containing Chest X-ray (CXR) Images of COVID19, NORMAL, PNEUMONIA. All images are preprocessed and resized to 256x256 in PNG format.

The dataset is a multi classification, it has three labels COVID, NORMAL and PNEUMONIA.

Competition :

Detect and classify COVID19 and Pneumonia from Chest X-Ray Images using Deep Learning methods.

If you are not familiar with images processing and deep learning you can take a look at few notebooks at Kaggle that handle chest x-ray images :

Timeline :

The competition will open Thursday February 8th, at 8AM CET time. And it will be open until March 12nd.

Prize :

1st prize : 300 euros

2nd prize : 200 euros

Notebook GPU : offers for free GPU based jupyter notebook, that you MUST use to build your model.

The notebook offers per user :

  • 16 Gb GPU (Tesla T4)

  • 4 vCPU

  • 28 Gb RAM

  • 100 Gb persistant storage notebook comes with pre support of PyTorch, Tensorflow and Keras.
