SVAI is a special interest community group, exploring the application of Artificial Intelligence in Life Sciences. We host monthly gatherings to educate and connect researchers, startups and new AI initiatives. We have a special focus on AI/ML applied to computation in biology, genomics, drug discovery, individualized medicine and healthcare.
Our First Open Source Project, Data Set:
We're kicking off our first open source project and making medical data sets available through SVAI. We're happy to announce a Whole Genome sequence data set for NF2 for the SVAI community. NF2 is a genetic condition that causes tumors to grow from Schwann cells. In June, we will be hosting a hackathon with this data set, which will continue as an open-source collaborative project on SVAI.
