AI microscopy symposium
Hosted by the Aivia team, Leica Microsystems and Fred Hutch
Online | October 27, 2020
8 - 11a Pacific | 11a - 2p Eastern | 3 - 6p London

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are opening this event (previously open to Seattle area researchers) to a global audience. Join us on Tuesday, October 27th, for a symposium on artificial intelligence-guided techniques for microscopy. The event features presentations from leaders in AI microscopy and technology showcases of AI-enabled tools for imaging.
