DETECTING EMERGING THREATS IN INJURY AND VIOLENCE USING NETWORK SCIENCE CHALLENGE Are you interested in working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (Injury Center) in having a positive impact on the health and safety of Americans? Do you enjoy working with network science, algorithms, and datasets? The Detecting Emerging Threats in Injury and Violence Using Network Science Challenge gives you the opportunity to discover a new application of network science to impact emerging health threats, win your share of a $16,000 prize purse, and receive national recognition. To participate, you will need to provide a network science approach to one of the Injury Center’s priority topics - Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), Suicide, and Drug Overdose. The Injury Center hopes solutions to this Challenge will find novel ways to identify, characterize, and prevent emerging injury-related health threats more quickly. If you can use social media data sources to make predictions about future threats, leverage the latest advances in machine learning and AI, or find another new way of applying network science to this challenge, you could win! CHALLENGE OVERVIEW The Injury Center protects Americans by using data and research to understand how to prevent injuries and violence and then puts it into practice. Through this Challenge, the Injury Center wants to determine how network science can be used to support their work. For this challenge, they are looking for innovative solutions that use network science to address one or more of their priority emerging health threats – ACEs, suicide, and drug overdose. Submissions must demonstrate the effectiveness of the network science approach, show the potential impact the solution could have on the area(s) addressed, describe the approach to the problem, and describe the data used for the solution. The data must be accessible, from reliable data sources, and U.S. based. Submissions will be judged on the quality of the proposal, the relevance and accessibility of the data sources, and the approach to the problem. Both theoretical and submission with demonstrating data/mathematical solutions will be accepted; submissions that can demonstrate the solution will score higher. Solvers will have eight weeks from launch to submit their solution. Up to three prizes will be awarded to the top solvers that achieve the requirements of the challenge for a total of $15,000. First place will be awarded $7,500, second place will be awarded $5,000, and third place will be awarded $2,500. Up to ten additional $100 prizes will be awarded for innovative solutions that meet the criteria. All teams that meet the criteria will receive a CDC certificate of participation. The results from the winning solutions may be used to publish a scientific paper. CHALLENGE BACKGROUND CDC works 24/7 to protect America from health, safety, and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. To accomplish their mission, CDC conducts critical science and provides health information that protects our nation against expensive and dangerous health threats and responds when these arise. The Injury Center (https://www.cdc.gov/injury/), part of CDC, focuses on protecting Americans from injury and violence which are leading causes of death for children and adults ages 1-45 in the U.S. The Injury Center uses data to understand when and why violence and injuries occur; data and data systems help them understand the burden of unintentional and violence-related injury and death in the U.S. They then use data and research to develop strategies to prevent injury and violence. The Injury Center has three priority topics: protecting youth from adverse childhood experiences, combating overdose, and preventing suicide. PRIZES Total Purse: $16,000 Up to 3 prizes will be awarded to the top solvers that achieve the requirements of the challenge for a total of $15,000. The best solution will be awarded $7,500, second place will be awarded $5,000, and third place will be awarded $2,500. Up to ten additional $100 prizes will be awarded for innovative solutions that meet the criteria. All competitors that meet the criteria will receive a certificate of participation from CDC.
