Deadline: Registration due Friday, November 1, 2019.
In this hackathon, you will get a chance to bring your ideas to reality, and create a future which helps with augmenting human intelligence. In the process you will also learn the end-to-end process of building machine learning (ML) models. You will then learn how to apply pre-trained ML API services to a wide spectrum of business and project challenges. You will also learn how AI/ML enabled devices are making it easy for developers to get started with deep learning and other forms of ML. Finally, you will learn how to build, train, and deploy ML models for scale using Amazon SageMaker, a fully-managed service covering the entire machine learning workflow.

UW Medicine’s Health Equity department and the UW TGNB Health Program are hosting a community conversation on Tuesday October 22nd from 6pm to 8pm. This is an opportunity for the TGNB community and their caregivers to tell UW Medicine about their experiences with the UW health system as TGNB identified folks and/or their caregivers. What worked well, what can be improved upon, and what their ideal experience is when accessing healthcare are some of the discussion points. This is also an opportunity to share with UW Medicine, why one may avoid the UW system and or the reputation that it has, or lack thereof, with the TGNB community. The Health Equity department has created a Health Equity Blueprint to inform our pathway to health equity as a system, and as a part of that blueprint, the feedback given in these community conversations is reported back and incorporated into the decisions made by UW Medicine. Because of that, the UW TGNB Health Program would love to get the word out as much as possible, so that folks can attend and share their thoughts or stories (positive or negative), as this a unique opportunity to directly impact the TGNB Health Program and TGNB healthcare at UW Medicine.
Interested in how people create and distribute information (and misinformation) following a natural disaster? You should consider attending the fourth in the iSchool Research Symposium series. Presented by Dr. Megan Finn, the talk focuses upon how today’s post-disaster information landscape is shaped by institutions, policies, and technologies. Light refreshments will be provided. Please feel free to bring your lunch.
