The winning team will be awarded $5,000 USD. We would like to sincerely thank Intuitive Surgical for this contribution to the challenge.
Can participants use semi-automatic methods?
Of course, we will claim the method is interactive in the manuscript.
Manual intervention in the predictions is not allowed.
We recognize that there is tremendous practical value in semi-automatic systems, but this challenge is meant to be an objective comparison of automatic methods. You’re certainly welcome to use the data develop and publish on semi-automatic methods, but they can’t be used for this year’s challenge.
Go it, thanks for your reply.
