PhysioNet 2023 Challenge Opening

Feb. 22, 2023

We are delighted to announce the opening of the George B. Moody PhysioNet Challenge 2023. This year’s Challenge invites teams to use electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings to predict the neurological recovery of patients from coma in the hours following resuscitation from cardiac arrest. This Challenge leverages a novel database of over 1,000 subjects from seven hospitals who together underwent over 50,000 hours of EEG monitoring. As always, the team with the best score for this task on the hidden test set wins the Challenge.

We have shared data, example code, and scoring code in both MATLAB and Python, and we will open the scoring system in the coming weeks. As in previous years, we have divided the Challenge into two phases: an unofficial phase and an official phase. The unofficial phase solicits feedback from the research community (i.e., you) to help us to improve the Challenge for the official phase, so we require teams to register and participate in the unofficial phase of the Challenge to be eligible for a prize. Please enter early and often – we need you to look for and share the quirks in our data, our scoring system, and otherwise. 

Please see the Challenge website and the Challenge forum for more information, rules and deadlines:

Many thanks again for your continued support of this event, and we hope that you enjoy the 2023 Challenge.
