NIOSH Announces Results from Competition for Artificial Intelligence Programmers

Artificial intelligence (AI) is not just a thing of the future. Results from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) crowdsourcing competition for AI programmers are in, exploring ways to automatically read injury records and classify them in occupational safety and health surveillance systems. The 1st place winner, Raymond van Venetië, is a doctoral student in Numerical Mathematics at the University of Amsterdam whose submission improves NIOSH’s ability to classify worker injuries from the NIOSH baseline of 82% accuracy to nearly 90% accuracy.
