Models, Inference & Algorithms (MIA)
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a line of introduction to receive our weekly emails, including all relevant details for upcoming talks.
Schedule changes will be noted on the website and in MIAcast. MIA is now in person with a virtual option available:
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.
MIA's efforts are driven by the Steering Committee: Alex Bloemendal (co-chair, Fall 2015 - Jan 2022), Arnav Mehta, Elizabeth Wood, Emma Stickgold, Juan Caicedo, Lois Doolittle, Martin Jankowiak, Marzieh Haghighi, Mehrtash Babadi, Mor Nitzan, Ray Jones, and Sam Friedman, Wengong Jin, and Salil Bhate.
Jon Bloom and Alex Bloemendal founded MIA in Fall 2015. Jon Bloom served as a co-chair through July 2019. Past Steering Committe members: Allen Goodman, Debora Marks, David Benjamin, Dylan Kotliar, Gopal Sarma (co-chair, Jul 2019 - Jan 2021), James McFarland, Jon Bloom, Hilary Finucane, Sam Riesenfeld, Yakir Reshef, Aviad Tsherniak, Max Shen, Brian Cleary, Mollie Morg, and Anika Gupta .
