  • Main language this week: Français, English
  • Theme : Machine learning and genetic engineering, what??, how, why?
  • Date : Wednesday, February 6th, 2019. Doors open at 7pm, screening, discussion and workshop(maybe?) at 7.30pm
  • Place: NEW SPACE!!
    Route de Crochy 20, 1024 Ecublens
    a 5 min du M1, Chavannes-R., Crochy[1]

Main topic: How to design and perform an experiment? what should be our checklist for society and state as we blast off?

Preparatory section for our role at Ditchley Conference on ML and Gene Editing From scratch to cool, Do-It-Together style. You do not need a piece of equipment, just your curiosity and questions, existential doubts and/or proposals.

Any person, curious mind can learn a thing or two thanks to this approach. If your last biology experience was around age 14, even better: come to see how the Hackuarium approach can make a difference in science, policy-making and technology.

DISCLAIMER: Zombie kittens and baby design topics might be brought up at some point, and its atypical issues during those experiments... but also, in more earthly realms, how would we benefit or not of getting hands on this kinda tech?


General comments

Intro to Hackuarium, and: Hello new space at Ecublens!

You might have heard we are moving (out, up, any direction you like).
That's right, we emptied our lab at the 2nd floor of Les Ateliers de Renens, Closel 5, CH-1020 Renens (VD), over the past month. We are still exploring new opportunities for a space, after 4 years in that building where our association, lab, and most importantly, community, were born.
This is then officially our first nomadic #OpenHackuarium (number 227, that's a lot of Wednesdays), kindly hosted by our now ex-neighbors at the 3rd floor, MassChallenge Switzerland. We voted during our last General Assembly to try and make them a regular contribution to our now past first ecosystem.

Future events

Still cooking.
