Virtual ICM Seminar with Sven Dorkenwald: “Towards whole-brain Connectomes: Recostructing all neurons in a fly brain at nanometer resolution”
Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling – ICM University of Warsaw gathers outstanding scientists in a series of Virtual ICM Seminars. With XX meetings so far and more than 1600 participants, ICM invites everyone to join its next seminar!
Sven Dorkenwald, a PhD student at Princeton University, created FlyWire to facilitate the proofreading of neuronal circuits in an entire fly brain by a community of researchers distributed across the world. While FlyWire is dedicated to the fly brain, its methods will be generally applicable to whole-brain connectomics and are already in use to proofread multiple datasets.
Join the seminar to learn more!
FlyWire is a game-like platform open to all, to help crowdsource the first complete wiring diagram of a centralized brain. In a fruit fly brain sliced and imaged by electron microscopy (Zheng et al. 2018), we identified pieces of neurons by artificial intelligence. Players search for the right pieces and put together beautiful 3D neurons that advance science’s understanding of brain circuits. [https://flywire.ai/]

About Virtual ICM Seminars in Computer and Computational Science
Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling – ICM University of Warsaw gathers outstanding scientists in a series of Virtual ICM Seminars, which started back in March 2020. With 20. meetings so far and more than 1600 participants, ICM invites YOU to join its next seminar.
Worldwide Open Science online meetings in HPC, Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Computing, BigData, IoT, computer and data networks are a place to meet and discuss with such personalities as Hiroaki Kitano (Systems Biology Institute, Tokyo / Sony Computer Science Laboratories), Stephen Wolfram (Founder & CEO, Wolfram Research), Alan Edelman (MIT), Aneta Afelt (ICM University of Warsaw, Espace-DEV, IRD Montpellier France), Simon Mutch (University of Melbourne) or Scott Aaronson (University of Texas at Austin).
The website with access to the SCFE and seminars’ recordings, has been visited by more than 18k visitors from 122 countries. For the listing of all ICM seminars please check this link with recordings.
The organizer of meetings with outstanding scientists is the Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling (ICM), University of Warsaw, created by dr Marek Michalewicz former ICM’s Director.
