    About This Project

    I am trying to find a cheap, easy and reliable way to grade the skill of surgeons in training. Experts can judge resident surgical skill, but they are slow, have biases, and are expensive. If you watched the video, I'll bet you could tell the difference between the expert and the trainee, even without the labels. We will test the hypothesis that crowd sourcing surgical skill assessment is a cheap, fast, and standardized alternative to expert grading.

    Blast off!
