* 2009 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining Contest *

* PBC Brain Connectivity Challenge
* 2009 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers International Conference on Data Mining
* Pittsburgh Brain Competition Brain Connectivity Challenge

Brief summary:

The competition involves applying data mining to map the “cables of the human brain” mapping ~300,000 fiber streamlines into

20-50 cables or tracts. It involves two challenges 1) Supervised learning to match the categorization of an expert, and 2)

Unsupervised learning of within and between subject segmentation. A short YouTube presentation details the competition

including illustrations of the fiber tracts. Details are available at the web site braincompetition.org. All entrants will

be able to compare their scores relative to all the other completed entrants. Awards will be announced at ICDM December

2009. They will include: Supervised Learning Match Expert Award $2000 (US); Unsupervised Learning Within and Between

Subject Award; and possibly a Contest Crown Award (if a group scores top in both award categories including $1000 and the

option to have the team leader have their brain scanned to create a fiber map of their brain).
