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 | SUPER INTERESTING VITAL LINK TO CHECK OUT DISCUSSION THREAD AND CONTEXT HERE 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?

[OPEN CALL] Hey hey, Hackuarium is invited to contribute to contribute and drive a discussion about:

The intersection of Machine Learning and genetic engineering: what should be our checklist for society and state as we blast off?

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. This is then officially our first #OpenHackuarium (number 247, that's a lot of Wednesdays), hosted at our NEW SPACE WEEEEE >

Future events

Still cooking.
