Data Management for Large (Deep Learning) Models Hackathon

Data Management for Large (Deep Learning) Models Hackathon

Calling all bioinformatics problem-solving enthusiasts! CMU Libraries, in partnership with DNAnexus, is hosting a three-day hackathon, October 19-21st. Get ready to dive into graph extraction for large models in the biomedical space. Fill out this brief application here. Applications close on Tuesday, September 26th, and late applicants will be waitlisted.

The hackathon is a collaborative event, with each team working on a dedicated part of the problem. The teams will be focused on the following topics:

  • Knowledge graph based validation for variant (genomic) assertions
  • Continuous monitoring for RLHF; Flexible infrastructure for layering assertions with rollback
  • Flexible tokenization or graph-based loading of complex data types
  • Assertion tracking in large models
  • Column headers for data harmonization
  • Time-resolved vector positioning in large models
  • Cohort based vcfs to knowledge graphs
  • Virus-associated changes in disease trajectories
  • Metagenomic features associated with health and disease

All pipelines and other scripts, software, and programs generated in this hackathon will be added to a public GitHub repository designed for that purpose. The outputs are often published as preprints or on the F1000 hackathon channel.
