πŸŽ™ Talks

This month we have two amazing speakers on two very different topics:

DeepTree: Automated Deep Lineage Tree Analysis via Single-Cell Tracking Software

  • Speaker: Kristina Ulicna
  • Talk Description: To study the nature of cell population heterogeneity, we developed a deep learning & computer vision-based single-cell tracking workflow for fully unsupervised analysis of large automated time-lapse live-cell microscopy datasets. We retrieved cell cycle durations in >20,000 mammalian MDCK cells organised into >5,000 multigenerational, automatically reconstructed, fully annotated deep lineage trees spanning up to 8 generations, without the demand for manual curation of the computer-generated trajectories.
  • About Speaker: I'm a biomedical scientist turned computational biologist at an interdisciplinary PhD programme at UCL, London. I have gained research experience from MIT & Cancer Research UK, where I first learned how to code & fell in love with python development.

Software architecture for proctoring tool

  • Speaker: Jaime Buelta
  • Talk Description: A brief architecture look at CheckpointZ, a proctoring tool for online exams, with special detail on the Python areas, like the AI module.
  • About Speaker: Python developer for the last 10 years. Regular speaker in PyCon Ireland

Thank you for your support this year!

I would like to say thanks to all the speakers, supporters, my awesome co-organisers (Lei and Mick) for being patient for all the live-stream bumps along the way since April.

And folks, that's a wrap for this year, see you all in 2021!
