The ExCAPE project is challenging the Pistoia Alliance in their deep learning hackathon to come up with innovative and performant predictive models for a handful of assays coming from the ExCAPE dataset.

The Pistoia Alliance is a global, not-for-profit alliance of life science companies, vendors, publishers, and academic groups that work together to lower barriers to innovation in R&D. The Pistoia Alliance oganizes its first hackathon to bring the deep / machine learning community together with the life-science and healthcare industry to demonstrate the potential of deep learning to aid drug discovery and bring new life saving treatments to the world.
