We were granted with a Kaggle Open Data Research Grant
Our project on GANs for ultrasound simulation has been awarded with a Kaggle Open Data Research Grant.
We are proud to announce that we were awarded with a Kaggle Open Data Research Grant for Santiago Vitale’s PhD project on GANs for ultrasound simulation. This grant comprises U$D 2.000 and are awarded to AI initiatives that will ultimately release both code and data. In this case, it was assigned to our project on ultrasound simulation using a combination of ray-casting techniques and GANs. This is part of Santiago’s PhD thesis, supervised by Ignacio Larrabide and in which I’m collaborating mostly for the AI part. The other team members are Emmanual Iarussi (CONICET / UTN Regional CABA) and Alejandro Díaz (CONICET / UNICEN).
This grant comes in the right moment, as we were seeking to improve our computational resources by buying new NVIDIA GPUs. Thanks Google Kaggle for supporting our research!
