Google Analytics Report:

Activities completed this month
  1. Fixed the server issue. Apache was watching the wrong directory
  2. Set up my own AWS S3 bucket and was able to talk to it with a terminal CLI (aws cli)
Planned for next month
  1. ONGOING - Continue the Federated Learning Document about integrating MedICI and Federated Challenges.
    1. Document is pending some additional notes. We are currently working with ACR (American College of Radiology) to deploy some Federated Learning clients and servers and this will greatly help me understand the complexities involved with setting up Federated learning challenges. Next month hopefully I'll have a better idea of what goes into setting up a system like this. 
  2. Continue getting CodaLab running on NCI's network and VMs:
    1. Issues:
      1. Credentials for AWS bucket not active and we cannot talk to the bucket. Need to reach out to Tony Bigham ( to get those refreshed. 
      2. On my local machine I deployed the updated CodaLab code and tried connecting to my own S3 bucket instance. I noticed that there is a javascript error making the request to the bucket. I need to setup up a similar but more simple setup to figure out how to upload data to s3 via javascript http requests so that I can trouble shoot the error on NCI's system and or mine. If we could use Azure, this might be resolved.

Continuous development of CodaLab on NCI's network is exposing bugs in deployment and or CodaLab itself. This isn't an issue in theory, but I don't know how many issues I'll need to correct in order for the system to work. It is hard to estimate time to completion as a consequence.Kevin Olexa and I are working together to address each as they come up. 1In Progress
