This fall, CMU Libraries is hosting a hackathon in partnership with DNAnexus on the topic of data management and graph extraction for large models in the biomedical space. The hackathon will be held in person at CMU, October 19-21, 2023.

The hackathon is a collaborative, rather than competitive, event, with each team working on a dedicated part of the problem. The teams will be focused on the following topics:

  • Knowledge graph-based validation for variant (genomic) assertions
  • Continuous monitoring for RLHF and flexible infrastructure for layering assertions with rollback
  • Flexible tokenization of complex data types
  • Assertion tracking in large models
  • Column headers for data harmonization

All pipelines and other scripts, software, and programs generated in this hackathon will be added to a public GitHub repository designed for that purpose. The outputs are often published as preprints or on the F1000 hackathon channel.

If interested in participating, fill out this brief form.

Contact Ben Busby (bbusby@dnanexus.com) with any questions about the hackathon or serving as a team lead.
