Hands on Tech Summer Camp for High School Students

NerDS lab members developed an intro to image analysis and deep learning for high school students. We taught the module to two groups of high school students that participated in the HOT Days program organized by the ECE department at Georgia Tech.

Our python notebook and instructions on how to use Colaboratory are located on the lab’s github page. (Hands on Tech Github Repo)

Deep Learning for Microscopy Course @ MBL

Eva, Aish, and Joe had the opportunity to serve as instructors at the Deep Learning for Microscopy Workshop at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL). The course was organized by Jan Funke and Patrick LaRiviere and was funded by the National Center for Brain Mapping at the University of Chicago.
