AI Forward

Connect global developers to tackle a series of most challenging digital transformation issues through AI competitions, courses, datasets and more.

AI Challenges

This Competition focuses on the prediction of anti-VEGF treatment outcomes on patients with diabetic macular edema (DME). In this synchronous competition, you’ll build a machine learning model to predict treatment response of patients with DME. You’ll work with thousands of images collected in hospital settings to help predict patients’ response to anti-VEGF treatments. If successful, you will help ophthalmologists customize treatment plans and ensure timely and effective treatments for patients.

This challenge encourages developers and innovative enterprises around the world to think outside the box, break boundaries, and leverage accessible weather data to analyze the interplay between meteorological changes and various aspects of life, probe into the correlation between multi-source heterogeneous data, and raise the public awareness of the value of AI-assisted weather forecasting and green innovations.
