Prof. Henning Müller is included among the organizers of Open Science Prize projects. The Open Science Prize is a partnership between the Wellcome Trust, the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute to unleash the power of open content and data to advance biomedical research and its application for health benefit.
The deepPMC project uses the Open PubMed Central content to create deep training data sets for machine learning and image analysis. The goals of this pilot project would be to
i) enrich the metadata of open access content of PMC focusing on the histopathology image data by organizing challenges for crowdsourcing of this task
ii) develop tools that give access to the data to develop cohorts for machine learning as well as to support information retrieval of images or articles based on visual and textual information.
