I am pleased to announce a new collaborative interest initiative called DevoWormML, based on work being done in the DevoWorm group. DevoWormML will meet on a weekly basis, and explore the application of machine learning and artificial intelligence to problems in developmental biology. These applications can be geared towards the analysis of imaging data, gaining a better understanding of thought experiments, or anything else relevant to the community.
While “ML” stands for machine learning, participation can include various types of intelligent systems approaches. Our goal is to stimulate interest in new techniques, discover new research domains, and establish new collaborations. Guests are welcome to attend, so if you know an interested colleague, feel free to direct them our way.
Meetings will be Wednesdays at 1pm UTC on Google Meet. Discussions will also take place on the #devowormml channel of OpenWorm Slack (request an invitation). We will discuss organizational details at our first meeting on September 4. If you cannot make this time but are still interested in participating, please contact me. Hope to see you there!
