Models, Inference & Algorithms (MIA)
Due to new policies addressing COVID-19, MIA meetings for fall 2020 will be held via Zoom.
The Models, Inference & Algorithms (MIA) Initiative supports learning and collaboration across the interface of biology, mathematics, statistics, machine learning, and computer science. Our weekly meeting features a primer, breakfast, seminar, and discussion; these are open and pedagogical, emphasizing lucid exposition of computational ideas over rapid-fire communication of results. Other MIA functions include hosting workshops, developing educational resources, advising leadership, and supporting the computational community.
