About the Mayo Clinic and nference AI Challenge

In response to the elevated demand for new data technologies, and internal support of these capabilities, the Mayo Clinic and nference AI Challenge supports innovative research in data science and AI.

This program seeks research projects targeting novel AI and data science applications solving clinical or technical challenges. Projects are evaluated primarily on the basis of the medical need of the problem to be addressed, as well as the potential for AI to make a meaningful impact on that problem. Consultation with representatives of nference and Health Sciences Research is available and encouraged.
