• Malaria Challenge Kickoff - Health Hackers Machine Learning Group

    We are happy to present the first Health Hackers Kaggle Challenge! Malaria is a serious disease that has cost countless lives and is particularly devastating in several countries in Africa. Often, the expertise and lab equipment to diagnose the disease is the critical missing factor. One part of the diagnostic process is looking at blood samples to check for the parasite infection. The given dataset is a great opportunity to throw our machine learning skills at. We are curios to see how good the created classifer can get at this task in one month time only. For this you can either work alone on this challenge or surround yourself with a great team. Prize: The winner of the competition will receive a winner certificate from the Health Hackers e.V. and a small prize. Also, there will be beer and food! To get everything started, we want to host a great kickoff. This will be featuring an introduction to the topic by an expert (TBA) on the topic, a brief introduction to working on Kaggle and with Kaggle Kernels and the opportunity to start coding and find a team! Agenda: 10:00 - 10:30 Breakfast - Weißwurst / Bretzels 10:30 - 11:15 Challenge introduction 11:30 - 12:30 Teambuilding / Get started 13:30 - 16:00 - Work on the challenge 16:00 - Get together, drinks Note: Due to spatial limitations we can only offer a limited number of slots for this event but you can still join the challenge even without attending the Kickoff. So, if this date does not work for you, don't despair, just write an email to [masked] and we will add you to our Slack where you can find all the info and team partners.

  • Meet Awesome Technologies - Doctor‘s Visit of the Future with Telemedicine

    DHIP (Ecke Hartmannstr. - ehemaliger Showroom von Siemens Healthineers)

    Telemedicine wants to change the way we visit a doctor. And without a doubt in many cases that would make a lot of sense. But what are these use cases nowadays and how is it going to change with modern technology on the rise? What are the challenges both doctors and patients are facing when there is no physical encounter taking place? What are the limitations? How is the regulation changing in Germany and beyond? With the startup “Awesome Technologies” from Würzburg we have a telemedicine solution provider as discussion partner to tackle these questions. But before we discuss all of this they are going to present us their approach called “AMP”. AMP is supposed to offer a variety of features to make telemedicine work such as virtual presence via video conference, transfer of medical information and prioritizing of tasks between involved healthcare professionals. As a development partner for their solution they were able to work with an elderly care facility runned by the Cariatas. In the future they are aiming to be the key enabler for telemedical communication between mobile care givers, general practitioner, medical specialists and hospitals. After the presentation we will discuss several other similar use cases and concepts in a few interdisciplinary groups. Agenda*: 18:30 – 18:45 Opening and Introduction 18:45 – 19:45 Pitch, Demo and QA 19:45 – 20:45 General Discussion and Use Cases after 20:45 – Drinks & Chat * The talk and discussion might be in English or German depending on audience and speakers Everyone is free to join this event. The audience is the Health Hacker community (physicians, care givers, engineers, programmers and hackers) and both the medical and medical technology students of the lecture “New technologies and methods for the future of healthcare”. So we can analyze this concept from the medical as well as the technical aspect. Looking forward to meet you all! Cheers Health Hackers
