Hi tracers! Today’s news is a little bittersweet - I am leaving the Center for Game Science to embark upon a new opportunity. Fortunately, we have a strong developer core here, and they have promised to take care of things in the interim as they search for your next great Community Manager. Please continue to use the forums to file your bug issues and fantastic suggestions - they already have quite the list thanks to all of you, but as you know, the work never really stops.
Keep an eye on UW Hires in the near future to find out when the position will be made available. If all goes as planned it probably won’t be up for long. It will be based on campus, here in Seattle.
Thank you so much for letting me be your Community Manager through this essential early beta period. I look forward to hearing exciting news about Mozak and the discoveries you will all make together. Also, you may see me around here contributing to a neuron or two in my spare time and making a chase on those leaderboards - it turns out I’ve also learned a thing or two about neuron reconstruction with everyone else.
In the meantime, farewell, and thank you!
Hello players, a couple more challenges have just been posted. Like yesterday we have a pair of neurons taken from a mouse and a human. Mouse-V1-24 has no gold standard so be careful with those traces so it can give the folks at the AIBS a better starting point.
Also we expect a brief outage tomorrow at April 20th around 4:30pm PDT so we can deploy some bug fixes. Apologies in advance for any inconvienence.
Hello players, two new challenges have just been posted. Mouse-V1-23 does not yet have a reconstruction created by the AIBS scientists. Hopefully your traces will give them a good starting point.
Human-TC-03 comes from the temporal cortex, see if you notice any differences between the human neuron and mouse one.
Just as a reminder Human-FC-01 and Mouse-V1-22 will be closing over the next few night so be sure to help address the last few scientist comments to bolster your scores.
Hello community! We have a few updates this afternoon for challenge closing times. Please plan accordingly, and thank you for all your hard work on these.
Mouse-ALM-13: Closing Wednesday, 5pm Pacific.
Human-FC-01: Closing Thursday, 5pm Pacific.
Mouse-V1-22: Closing Friday, 5pm Pacific.
We look forward to posting new challenges to replace the closing ones at these times.
