Bruno Jedynak, Mathematics and Statistics faculty, led a team that included three PSU students in the The Alzheimer's Disease Prediction Of Longitudinal Evolution (TADPOLE) Challenge. The team was awarded third place out of 68 entries worldwide. The TADPOLE Challenge is organized by the EuroPOND consortium in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI). TADPOLE is a challenge to identify which people within an age group at risk of Alzheimer’s disease will start to show symptoms in the short to medium term (1–5 years). The challenge is to use historical measurements from these individuals to forecast future measurements.
