Yesterday, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) launched the Applied AI Healthcare Challenge, a prize competition seeking diverse and practical solutions to help federal agencies provide the highest level of medical care.
This challenge focuses on improving healthcare outcomes in these areas:
Mental Health: AI technologies applied to mental health data to identify potential treatments.
Addiction and the Opioid Epidemic: AI technologies to help public service agencies identify trends to detect and intervene earlier.
Equity: AI to improve outcomes for populations disproportionately impacted by illness or disease.
Supply Chain and Safety: AI to improve access to and safety of medications and supplies.
Cancer: Research-based AI detection models to help detect cancers earlier and improve outcomes.
The Centers of Excellence (CoE) is working in partnership with Challenge.gov, both housed within GSA’s Technology Transformation Services (TTS), a part of GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service, to invite teams with new and existing AI technologies to participate in this competition as part of the Year of Open Science.
