TriPython February 2019 Meeting: It Asynchronous Make

Randy Barlow presents on the new asyncio standard library. Randy says, "If you are like me, you may have been stuck working with Python 2.7, staring over the fence at Python 3 and wishing you could use all the cool new stuff. Or maybe you couldn't use Python 3 because electric eels keep stinging you whenever you try. Whatever the case may be, we'll be talking in this session about the new asyncio library that was introduced in Python 3.4 and greatly enhanced with the async/await keywords in Python 3.5. Participants will get a high level overview of the library, and the concepts surrounding asynchronous programming. Maybe we'll even make a fun toy program together, who knows? This would be a great talk to attend if you know Python but haven't taken the time to explore this API."

Using Deep Learning to Model the Hierarchical Structure and Function of a Cell

May 23 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
DaVinci Conference Room

Ma J, Yu MK, Fong S, Ono K, Sage E, Demchak B, Sharan R, Ideker T. Abstract Although artificial neural networks are powerful classifiers, their internal structures are hard to interpret. In the life sciences, extensive knowledge of cell biology provides an opportunity to design visible neural networks (VNNs) that couple the model's inner workings to those of real systems. Here we develop DCell, a VNN embedded in the hierarchical structure of 2,526 subsystems comprising a eukaryotic cell (http://d-cell.ucsd.edu/). Trained…
