Group photo from Skunkworks All Hands Meeting 2022-12-09

Thanks for everyone that attended the All-Hands meeting last week! We had 40 people in person despite the weather and were able to add in a Zoom component as well for people that were stuck at home or participating remotely. We got hands-on with stable diffusion models and groups generated their interpretations of research topics and various broader scientific ideas using the generative machine learning models!

Special congratulations to the winning team from the Scientific Art Competition, team “Spacey Team”. If you’d like to see the images generated by the various teams you can see the compilation of submissions and activity instructions here. And if anyone wants to take a shot at using the tools yourself you can find the stable diffusion dream studio tool here.
