Congratulations to Max Dabagia for being awarded a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship! Max will be starting his PhD in the ML-CS program in Fall. Way to go Max!!
At the main meeting, John presented new results on using optimal transport for distribution alignment at NeurIPS. Check out the paper and a website where we discuss applications of the method to neural recordings.
Following the main meeting, Max presented his work on using Wasserstein barycenter regression for connectomics at the Optimal Transport for Machine Learning (OTML) Workshop. The workshop was great, we learned a lot!
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)
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.
Eva was awarded a Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Fellowship in Neuroscience! She is honored to be one of two fellows from the BME department to be awarded a Sloan Fellowship, along with Chethan Pandarinath.
TJ presented his new paper on using sparse approximation methods for estimating layers in cortical and retinal tissue samples at IEEE’s Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference. Way to go TJ!
