1) Integrated Azure's Kubernetes \ Storage \ Networks \ VM pools \ and Docker Registry pieces with CodaLab with the help from Patrick Flickinger. 

2) Integrated Okta into CodaLab for the same project. Okat is a single sign on, federate identity based authentication system. This means we can use Partners IDs for signing in.

Planned for next month

1) In September I need to make the VM resource pool contain GPUs.

2) Test Phase ends  9/3 and participant finalists will need their Dockers run on the CBIT platform as well as at MGH.

3) Upload Carolyn's video to Medici website.


Things that went well:

  • Integration with Azure infrastructure:
  • Integration with Okta:
  • Miccai Test Phase is finishing up and we have 10 total submissions:
  • With an active forum:

Things that could be improved:

  • Azure integration is pretty basic still. We need to test a real algorithm on real GPUs.
  • What we want to see above is more columns for characterizing the performance of the algorithm: ['AUC','Sensitivity','Specificity','Positive Predictive Value (PPV)']. We want to allow participants to train and get an output of their model so far. 

Bi-weekly Meeting #1


Bi-weekly Meeting #2



  • Azure integration
  • Okta Integration
  • Miccai Test Phase is completed in a day (9/4)
