This year Hanchuan Peng (Allen Institute for Brain Science) began the next phase of the effort called BigNeuron. However, rather than a competition, this time the project would be a collaboration.

The key idea is to create a single platform on which all algorithms can be run, compared, and their results combined to form reconstructions better than any one could achieve alone.


BigNeuron: Building consensus among automated morphological reconstructions

By Todd A. Gillette, Hanchuan Peng, Xiaoxiao Liu, Yinan Wan, Giorgio A. Ascoli

A community effort to find out what is exactly the state-of-the-art of single neuron reconstruction, standardize the protocols, and esablish a Big Data resource for neuroscience.
