DTRA/SCC-WMD Announces $1 Million Algorithm Challenge
Date:12/13/2012

a:
  • Assesses the data, however complete or limited
  • Provides the best possible characterization of the sample
  • Identifies and quantifies all components when possible
  • Speculates (with probability and justification) when positive ID is not possible
  • Makes recommendations for further analysis
  • Does not rely on an expert user
  • Requires little overhead
  • Is fast

“Diagnostics is a critical area of emphasis for DTRA in creating new capabilities and products in detecting chemical and biological threats whether natural or intentional,” said Dr. Alan Rudolph, DTRA’s Director of Chemical/Biological Technologies. “The Algorithm prize is a great example where we are looking for novel solutions from advanced mathematics to unlock complex human diagnostic data to better determine health status that could inform on early and effective treatment options to these threats.”

Prize details and sequencing datasets will be made available in January 2013. For more information about the DTRA Challenge, visit the challenge website at http://www.innocentive.com/dtra.

DTRA is a combat support agency of the U.S. Department of Defense, founded in 1998, headquartered at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. Its mission is to safeguard the United States and her Allies from Weapons of Mass Destruction (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear) and High-Yield Explosives by providing capabilities to reduce, eliminate and counter the threat, and mitigate its consequences.
