Attendees: Bharath, Vignesh, David, Seyone


Bharath gave the same update as he did the previous day.

Vignesh has been working on adding evaluation capabilities to JaxModel and has also been working on a physics inspired neural network model. Bharath mentioned that it might be worth looking at

David has been working to fix a small bug he found in the atomic convolutions model. David has been facing a memory issue with SwissProt. Bharath mentioned it might be good to look at for tips.

Seyone has been working to fix the RobertaFeaturizer. The core mypy errors have been mostly solved but there’s still a couple issues to fix there.

Atreya has just put up his PRs for his layers and it looks like everything is passing right now. He has multiple PRs that will need to be merged inn.
