The Eric and Wendy Schmidt Center hosts workshops, colloquia, and challenges that bring together global experts, machine learning and biology enthusiasts, students, postdocs, and researchers to define and collaborate on the biggest challenges at the nexus of machine learning and biology.
We’re also excited to partner with the Models, Inference, and Algorithms (MIA) Initiative at the Broad Institute on its weekly meeting series, which is open to the wider community.
Upcoming events:
Trey Ideker

"Building a mind for cancer"

October 2, 2023
3:00 pm
Monadnock Room, Broad Institute or online
Dana Pe'er

MIA Talks:
The MIA Initiative supports learning and collaboration across the interface of biology and medicine with mathematics, statistics, machine learning, and computer science. Their weekly meeting features a primer, seminar, informal discussion (and breakfast!). These are open and interactive meetings that emphasize pedagogical exposition of concepts and methods over rapid-fire presentation of results. 

MIA has been uniting biologists and ML experts since 2015, and, with Schmidt Center fellows serving on their steering committee, we’re excited to collaborate on this important initiative.
