Bharath gave the same update as at the last meeting.

Preyansh is a student at BITS Pilani working on chemical engineering and is interested in working on ML for retrosynthesis.

Ashwin this week has been working on the import error problem in his PR. There seems to be some issue with importing transformers. Ashwin has also started work on the wrappers for the models.

Atreya this week has been working on fixing up the MATModel PR. He was working to figure out how to write up the example for the PR. He’s just pushed the changes up to github.

Seyone has been busy with classwork but plans to work on ChemBERTa work this weekend.

There was a discussion on times for the GSoC meetup and it looks like first week of October might be a good time.
