American Epilepsy Society Seizure Prediction Challenge

The American Epilepsy Society Seizure Prediction Challenge, hosted on Kaggle.com, started on August 25, 2014, and will end on November 17, 2014. It is the second phase of the Seizure Detection and Prediction Challenge designed by researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and the Mayo Clinic. The first phase (ended on August 19, 2014), focusing on seizure detection, has attracted 200 teams, 241 players, and 4503 entries.More »

Image of the Month: Programmable Automotive Headlights Make Driving Glare Free and Safer

High beams are designed to illuminate dark roads, but may temporarily blind surrounding drivers. Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University have developed smart automotive headlights that light up the road without…More »

Winners of the Student Autonomous Underwater Vehicles Challenge Announced

For the first time two teams jointly won the SAUC-E competition, the Student Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Challenge – Europe. The ENSTA Bretagne team, with the robot SAUC-ISSE, and the DFKI GmbH-University of Bremen team, with the robot Avalon, triumphed over four other teams at the 9th edition. The 2nd prize went jointly to the ENSTA Bretagne team, with the robot CISSAU, and to University of Applied Sciences Kiel, with the robot TomKyle, which was awarded as well for the “Best Journal Paper”.More »
