Hi all, there is a new kaggle competition out touching the core of my daily work: It is about building a multi-label classifier for 28 classes of confocal microscopic images. The images have been taken from the Human Protein Atlas created by Emma Lundberg et al.
Emma has got a paper out in Nature Biotechnology this August describing an ealier effort on classifying these images, in part with labels crowdsourced to players of the MMO game EVE Online. It is a pretty good read.
See the press release
on the paper by Stanford University
Make sure to check out the paper and the competition.
Disclosure: I am working for the main sponsor of this competition.
