Winter holidays = Time to catch up on missed talks/papers! 🎉🎄☕️❄️

Some recommendations:

1) #SMILE4H 2021 talks: Top leaders who utilize SoTA of AI/ML in REAL clinical settings share what it takes:…

Useful to all DS/AI/ML folks who want to make *impact*
2) NeurIPS 2021!

I'm still midway through poster session #1 on the first day.. So many good talks, papers, workshops.……

Talks are not public yet but some accessible w/ (free) registration:…
3) ICLR 2021! I missed it this year so catching up on the amazing papers, talks and workshops


Talk recordings (all public & free):

4) Some cool podcasts/panels I've already watched & loved:

Daniel Kahneman & @ylecun:

Bernhard Schölkopf, Michael I. Jordan & Michael Kearns:

There is SO MUCH more and I'd suggest to start a random walk on YouTube after these...
6) If you're a student:

@NYUDataScience Deep Learning course (completely free w/ lecture recordings, notebooks, etc.) by @ylecun and @alfcnz

@huggingface Courses (on Transformers):…

There are a lot more but I stop here for now. Happy winter solstice, and enjoy your upcoming winter break!

I had my ​​​​BioNTech-Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine today!

mRNA vaccines are amazing feats, with many potential uses including cancer immunotherapy.

I couldn't find info on CDC/FDA about which cells the mRNAs interact with, once inside the body. Found a helpful paper on the topic...
In 2019, @PhilipJSantang1 et al. studied how the mRNAs (in this case, yellow-fever vaccine mRNA) spreads in the body up to 28 hours post injection.

They used monkeys in the study and used PET-CT imaging to track location of the mRNAs over time.…
I learned that:

1) mRNAs seem to be primarily localized in the injection site and lymph nodes by 28hr.

2) Dendritic immune cells have strong uptake of the mRNAs, and get activated and migrate to lymph nodes & interact with T- & B-Cells there, forcing them to make antibodies. Image from
