A total of 784 teams from around the world participated in this year's AI event. The top 10 winning teams are as follows:

  1. Guanshuo Xu
  3. VinBigData-Medical Imaging
  4. kazumax
  6. OsciiArt
  7. yuval reina
  8. [Aillis] Yuji + Jan + yama
  9. shimacha
  10. OrKatz

In addition, Dr. Ian Pan from HIGH D-DIMER won the inaugural 2020 Education Merit Award. The newly created award recognizes an individual from the top 10 teams whose code is outstanding for its completeness, organization, clarity, and efficiency.

The winning teams will share $30,000 ($25,000 euros) in prize money from Kaggle. They will also be recognized during the virtual RSNA meeting, which is scheduled to take place from 29 November to 5 December.
