Allostasis Machines, Acceptances, and More Ahead | SMN 21.02.27
A brief recap of this week’s Saturday Morning Neurosim (FEB 27), presented by Orthogonal Research & Education Laboratory
We began with a Slack review, and then a look at our forthcoming deadlines. Congratulations are in order for many in the lab: the Ethics Team and their acceptance to NYCWiC ’21; and Bradly Alicea, Anson, Daniella, and Jesse Parent for their ACM CHI Workshop on Emergent Interaction acceptance on Allostasis Machines. Revised abstract & authorship was sent to NYCWiC on Monday.
There are a number of deadlines and submissions at hand, including ALIFE 2021, CSV Data Conference, the International Workshop on Embodied Intelligence, and the potential of several lab members contributing to Princeton Envision 2021.
Outside of manuscript reviews and other discussion, Jesse showed off Lab Admin related updates using ZenHub to enhance GitHub. We have a blooming Zotero Library (see below), with resources building for specific options.
Busy times for OREL, and good luck to all of our members’ efforts — thank for contributions and continued asynchronous collaboration!
