Models, Inference & Algorithms (MIA)

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.

Jon Bloom and Alex Bloemendal founded MIA in Fall 2015. MIA's efforts are driven by the Steering Committee: Mehrtash BabadiAlex BloemendalBrian ClearySam Friedman, Aleksandrina GoevaAllen GoodmanDylan KotliarRay Jones, Debora MarksJames McFarland, Mollie Morg, Mor NitzanYakir ReshefGopal Sarma, Max Shen, Emma Stickgold, and Elizabeth Wood.

Past members: David BenjaminJon Bloom, Hilary FinucaneSam Riesenfeld, and Aviad Tsherniak


MIA Overview: Watch this introduction to the past, present, and future of MIA, and how you can help drive the fusion of machine learning and biomedicine. Check out the Kendall Square Codebreakers in the Harvard Crimson.


MIA Playlist: Watch and share our growing library of MIA videos.


Talking Machines: Hear interviews with Eric LanderAviv Regev, and Nick Patterson.

Fall 2020 Schedule: 10am primer, 11am seminar, 12pm discussion (all via Zoom), except where noted. Please see the week's MIAcast for Zoom meeting information, it will not be posted on this site.
