The Women in Machine Learning & Data Science (WiMLDS) Meetup aims to inspire, educate, regardless of gender, and support women and gender minorities in the field.

We are back for a special online meetup : a joint meetup between the Berlin & Paris WiMLDS chapter!

All genders may attend our meetups.

A Zoom link will be provided prior to the meetup.

Agenda

19:00 – Introduction by the Berlin & Paris WiMLDS teams

19:10 – “Accelerating SARS-COv2 Molecular Dynamics Studies with Optical Random Features” by Amélie Chatelain, Machine learning engineer @ LightOn

Abstract: Viruses -- or more generally, biomolecular systems -- are made of atoms which constantly fluctuate. However, they can occasionally undergo large-scale structural variations, called conformational changes. We explore detecting online these transitions in numerical simulations: this is a key to analyse and improve on drug discovery and design.

19:40 – "Cluster-free identification of informative features in single-cell omics data" by Anna Vlot, Doctoral Researcher at the Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology

Abstract: The development of single cell omics methods provides researchers with large sources of data to investigate the development of cell identity. Current methods to identify informative features of cell identity commonly rely on clustering groups of similar cells. In this presentation I will present a method which enables identification of biologically informative features without reliance on previous clustering.
