Develop an innovative or challenging workflow solution and win 1 lakh rupees. The solution should address challenges faced by today’s microscopicsts who spend significant time on image processing tasks such as object detection and image segmentation.
Don’t know coding? No problem. We also encourage microscopists without coding skills to participate as a team by finding a partner who can help with coding. You can provide the microscopy related challenge that your partner solves with his/her coding skills.
The contest is open from 1 November 2018 to 24 January 2019 and the winner will be announced in February 2019.
Who Can Participate?
** Any student, doctoral, post-doctoral or a researcher from any university or research institution in India.
** Participants with skills in Python, especially in Scikit-image, OpenCV, and Tensorflow will benefit from their added image processing skills.
** A good understanding of real life research problems involving microscopy also helps.
** We encourage collaboration where an algorithm specialist pairs up with a researcher to solve a real world microscopy challenge.
How To Participate?
** Fill the contest registration form below.
** Register for free on www.apeer.com and explore existing modules and workflows.
** Watch the videos below about module creation.
** Build your module and execute it as a workflow on APEER.
A panel of judges will pick the winner based on the following criteria:
** Workflow should be executable on www.apeer.com
** Relevance of the workflow to microscopy
** Usability of the workflow for multiple use cases
** Difficulty & usefulness
Only one top winner will be picked. The contest winner will receive a cash prize of 1 lakh rupees. Winner will be announced in February 2019.
APEER is a ZEISS initiative to bring the researcher and algorithm engineer together to accelerate research. The cloud platform enables any researcher to create, customize, and execute software workflows all the way from image acquisition to report generation.
Users can customize publicly shared application workflows or easily build personalized workflows for their specific jobs. Automation of image processing workflows saves valuable time that can be used for research that actually needs human involvement.
