Planned for next month
  1. Federated Learning Document about integrating MedICI and Federated Challenges is complete.
    1. Document is pending some additional comments that could come from Jayashree or Ulli.
    2. I will reread to polish.
  2. The BMMR2: Breast Multiparametric MRI for prediction of NAC Response challenge is getting some participants making submissions and the organizers extended the date another month (till Nov 30th 2021).
  3. MIDRC work is picking up as well as Microsoft work for kubernetes:
    1. MIDRC - we are getting azure credits to deploy MedICI with docker submissions. Should be next month (October).
    2. Patrick Flickinger from Microsoft and 2 other engineers (Anthony Cintron Roman and Fabiam Salamo) will be helping to help with a last push on this project. If complete it will allow for docker submissions in parallel.
  1. 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
