Four students from the Opus College of Engineering placed first for their project, “AI Ready Research Portal,” at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine Hackathon in National Harbor, Maryland.
The project developed a portal to search and anonymize radiology reports and images with the ability to link to pathology and genetics information from patients of the Marshfield Medical Center, Mayo Clinic, Medical College of Wisconsin and University of Wisconsin – Madison. The intent of the project is to reduce the research time, including AI application development, typically spent on gathering and harmonizing data sets.
The students were part of Team Great Lakes, which included eight engineering students in collaboration with members from the Mayo Clinic, Marshfield Medical Center, Medical College of Wisconsin and University of Wisconsin – Madison. The only undergraduate student team in attendance, Team Great Lakes presented four hackathon projects throughout the conference.
The SIIM Hackathon is an event within the SIIM annual meeting aimed at supporting workflow and process improvement across healthcare. Participants and attendees experience how new and experienced coders build and test applications, collaborate on projects and develop the next generation of applications and utilities.
