The Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons is hosting the first Artificial Intelligence Data Challenge conducted by surgeons. The aim of this challenge is to generate a large and diverse dataset of laparoscopic cholecystectomy videos, annotated with respect to the subcomponents of the Critical View of Safety (CVS). Computer scientists from all over the world will compete in developing AI models capable of reliable and accurate detection of the CVS.
The SAGES Video Acquisition Portal is now live, offering de-identification features to seamlessly remove Private Health Information data and metadata securely. Consider participating in this global endeavor and its associated research projects by contributing your laparoscopic cholecystectomy videos through the portal and/or signing up as an annotator.
Please go to the CVS Challenge Data donation web page to sign up and donate your videos of laparoscopic cholecystectomy procedures. For more information or any questions on how to donate your videos, please contact [email protected] or go to www.cvschallenge.org.
Additionally, we are asking people and institutions to volunteer or appoint annotators to be part of our annotation team. Annotators will be trained under SAGES consensus recommendations on an annotation framework for surgical video. Please appoint a volunteer to be part of our annotation team.
Thank you for your support of this exciting and promising AI data challenge!
