The importance and impact of AI in radiology has been rapidly expanding over the past few years–as can be seen with the growing size of the AI Showcase at RSNA. As an “AI first” company, we are committed to growing the ecosystem of AI developers, fostering new talent, and advancing research. Through Kaggle, and together with RSNA, we have hosted a number of medical imaging AI-based competitions to help encourage AI-based innovation in areas of medical need.
Last year, we hosted an AI competition, where over 1400 teams participated in building algorithms to detect a visual signal for pneumonia, one of the top 15 leading causes of death in the United States. Earlier this year, we launched another healthcare AI competition in collaboration with RSNA. For this challenge, Kaggle participants built algorithms to detect acute intracranial hemorrhage and its subtypes. This year’s competition drew 1,345 teams, 1,787 individuals across those teams, and over 22,000 submissions. By supporting these competitions, we hope to inspire more AI researchers to build algorithms and models that positively impact the healthcare community.
If you’re planning to attend RSNA, we’d love to connect! Stop by booth #11318 in the North Hall Level 2 in the AI Showcase to say hello and learn more about how we’re working with customers, partners and patients to engineer a healthier world together.
You’re invited to join our corporate symposium “Journey to the Cloud.” A number of our customers and partners will be on hand to share their experiences using Google Cloud to drive innovation in the PACS industry, enable real world evidence, and accelerate of new imaging solutions. The session is scheduled for Dec 3 at 9am CT (room S102AB, South Building, Level 1).

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!
