Coffee Meeting Log

Date Speaker Title Abstract
2018/04/13 Gilles Ferrand Demonstration of VR system for RIKEN Open Day This will serve as a rehearsal for the ABBL booth at RIKEN Open Day. I may start with a short introduction on how it works, and our goals. Then iTHEMS people can try the experience with the guidance of ABBL members. 
2018/05/11 Catherine Beauchemin Proposed iTHEMS project in virophysics: A web tool to count infectious virus!  I want to propose a fun, simple project for any iTHEMS members to join. The plan is to build a web-based calculation tool which can estimate the concentration of virus in a sample based on some standard measurements. 
2018/05/18 Masato Taki Arithmetic of Words Word2Vec, proposed by googlers in 2013, is a nice numerical representation of a set of words. This vectorial representation realizes arithmetic relation between words. I will briefly explain how this representation is constructed, and demonstrate it by using a text of Plato.
