Models, Inference & Algorithms (MIA)
In light of continuing physical distancing, MIA meetings for fall 2020 will be held via Zoom.
As always, meetings will include real-time questions—including direct verbal interaction—as well as an optional discussion following the seminar. Stay tuned for details.
We’ll be launching with a new start time of 10am ET (unless noted otherwise):
The Models, Inference & Algorithms (MIA) Initiative at the Broad Institute supports learning and collaboration across the interface of biology and medicine with 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.
