Models, Inference & Algorithms (MIA)

Website is currently under construction.
(old MIA page is available here)

The Models, Inference & Algorithms Initiative (MIA) supports learning and collaboration across the interface of biology and mathematics, statistics, machine learning, and computer science. Our weekly meeting features a primer, breakfast, seminar, and discussion; these are open and pedagogical, celebrating lucid exposition of computational ideas over the rapid-fire communication of results. Other MIA functions include hosting workshops, developing educational resources, advising leadership, and supporting the computational community to do its best work.

Write mia-team@broadinstitute.org to be added to our mailing list.

Director Jon Bloom and co-director Alex Bloemendal founded MIA in Fall 2015. MIA's efforts are driven by teams led by members of the Steering Committee.
