Call for DREAM Challenges
The DREAM Challenges are crowdsourcing challenges examining questions in biology and medicine.
The DREAM Challenges are an open science effort of crowdsourcing challenges to examine questions in biology and medicine. We are a non-profit, collaborative community effort with contributors from across the research spectrum including universities; technology companies like IBM Research; not for profits, like Sage Bionetworks; and biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. Since the beginning of the DREAM Challenges in 2006, we have been an innovator and leader in open science and crowdsourcing. The DREAM Challenge participants and organizers have numerous publications in top journals such as Science and Nature. Since the dawn of the DREAM Challenges, commercial crowdsourcing efforts have sprung up which utilize techniques that we pioneered.
