BEAT-PD Data Release

The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) in coordination with Sage Bionetworks and the BRAINCommons (BC) launched the The Biomarker and Endpoint Assessment to Track Parkinson’s Disease (BEAT-PD) Challenge in January 2020. The Challenge was designed to benchmark methods for the processing of unstructured (free-living) sensor data, in order to be predictive of Parkinson’s Disease severity. Participants were provided with raw sensor (accelerometer and gyroscope) time series data recorded during the course of daily living and were asked to predict individuals’ medication state and symptom severity.

Data will be available to the public through the BRAINCommons soon. Check back to login, explore and download the data. In the meantime, visit the BRAINCommons to learn more.
