About this Event

FYI: RSVP-ING WILL NOT GUARANTEE ENTRY TO THE EVENT. YOU MUST FILL OUT THE SUBMISSION FORM TO COMPLETE YOUR REGISTRATION

The QBI hackathon is a 48-hour event connecting the vibrant Bay Area developer community with the scientists from UCSF, during which we work together on the cutting edge biomedical problems. Recent advances in computer vision, AI, and machine learning have enabled computers to pick out cat videos, recognize people’s faces from photos, play video games and drive cars. We look forward to seeing how far we can push science ahead when we apply these latest algorithms to biomedically relevant light microscopy, electron microscopy, and proteomics data.

If you love FFTs, convolutional neural nets, topological data processing, or simply writing code, this is your chance to apply these skills to help discover cool, new biology. Beyond the actual event, we hope to establish a better connection between talented developers and scientists in the Bay Area, so that we can work together and learn from each other.

Prior to the hackathon, we will host a meet and greet mixer on October 4th at 5:30PM at 185 Berry Street, Suite 6850. This will give an opportunity for attendees to get to know each other, form groups and start thinking about their projects in advance of the actual hackathon. We STRONGLY suggest attending the meet and greet mixer to give yourself ample time to deliver your product.
