INTRODUCTION TO NEUROTECH
If you are new to Neurotechnology we invite to check out our introductory EEG module. It covers core-concepts and is designed to give you the fundamentals needed to understand the domain.
JOIN THE COMMUNITY
Our slack is the best place to talk to others in the community. We have multiple active channels that cover different aspects of Neurotechology. They can help answer any questions that you may have.
NOTE : In order to attend this meetup you'll need to register using MeetAI's eventbrite (https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/meet-ai-series-7-tickets-34717162969?aff=erelexpmlt) MeetAI London and NeurotechX want to join efforts and bring together a selected panel of experts in diverse aspects of machine learning and neuroscience. An open discussion centred around how this two fields work together, the current achievements, and the future goals and limitations. Neuroscience and artificial intelligence are heavily related and both are living a golden age. Machine learning has been inspired by the nervous systems since its first steps. Terms such as neural networks or reinforcement learning have been borrowed from natural sciences and translated into silicon. Neuroscience is using computational methods to push the limits of what we know from the brain, retro-feeding and expanding the symbiosis between this two fields. Combining both worlds we are now able to build machines that can be controlled directly by the brain, extending the capabilities of the human body and bringing the idea of cybernetic organisms come to life.

Prior to that she received a Bachelors in Neuroscience from the University of Pittsburgh, and then spent a year as a research fellow at the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience in Freiburg, Germany. She currently co-hosts Unsupervised Thinking, a podcast on neuroscience and artificial intelligence. Warrick Roseboom is a researcher focusing on human perception. His current position is as Time Perception Group leader at the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science, University of Sussex, UK. The Time Perception Group at Sackler is part of the six-partner EU project Timestorm, which aims to equip artificial systems with human-like temporal cognition.More generally, He's interested in how usually coherent perception can result from varying and sometimes incoherent sensory input. His research focuses on human temporal perception. Davide Valeriani is a post-doctoral researcher in Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) at the University of Essex. He obtained his PhD degree from the same university in 2017, with a thesis on collaborative BCIs. His research interests are in the area of non-invasive (EEG-based), multisensory (audio-visual) BCIs to improve individual and group decision making. He uses machine learning to assess the degree of decision confidence of individuals from their brain signals and other physiological and behavioural measures. In the past, Davide has been visiting researcher at Harvard University (USA) and a machine-learning research consultant in industry. He has been a member of the Essex team that won a bronze medal in the BCI race of the Cybathlon 2016. He co-founded a startup aiming at commercialising innovative interfaces to control technologies with the eyes. Moderator:Javier Asensio-Cubero is a computer scientist with a PhD in Brain Computer Interfacing from University of Essex, after which he's been back and forth from industry and academia, freelancing, and from the last year as a Research/ML/Software engineer in two different start-ups. He currently works for Emotech, an AI driven company where he spends his days playing with with Olly, the first voice assistant with emotions and personality. He joined NeurotechX in order to meet other people with similar interests in terms of neuroscience and technology.

Casual meet and greet for Vancouver's NeuroTechX members. Relaxed free flow of ideas and discussions. The world of brain computer interfaces is growing rapidly. Got an idea you want to work on? Come find your game changing collaborator. Want to learn about neurotechnology? Come meet people working on thecutting edge! Beginners to experts, everybody is welcome. Hope to see you out there, Benjamin Tam Hosted by Euler Technologies, a global biometric intelligence firm.
ApplySci's 8th conference on the radical reinvention of healthcare. 2018 speakers include: Vinod Khosla - Khosla Ventures Justin Sanchez - DARPA Bryan Johnson - Kernel Brian Otis - Verily Zhenan Bao - Stanford Nathan Intrator - Tel Aviv University | Neurosteer Bob Knight - Berkeley David Axelrod - Stanford Phillip Alvelda - Cortical AI Carla Pugh - University of Wisconsin Jamshid Ghajar - Stanford Mark Kendall - University of Queensland Paul Nuyujukian - Stanford Darin Okuda - UT Southwestern Jason Heikenfeld - University of Cincinnati Robert Greenberg - Second Sight Tony Chahine - Myant Shahin Farshchi - Lux Capital Adam D'Augelli - True Ventures Ambar Bhattacharyya - Maverick Ventures Juan-Pablo Mas - Action Potential Venture Capital Jacobo Penide - Handytronic Walter Greenleaf - Stanford FAQs How is Wearable Tech + Digital Health + Neurotech different? ApplySci's Wearable Tech + Digital Health + Neurotech conference series is held each year at Stanford University and the MIT Media Lab. The events are a series of scientist-led talks on technology to improve health. They are heavily curated, and each session is crafted to inspire. Where will the conference take place? We are fortunate to be able to hold the conference on campus at the Jen Hsun Huang Engineering Center. It will take place on the third floor, in the Mackenzie Room, overlooking the Main Quad and the Hoover Tower. What's included in the registration fee? Access to all conference sessions, breakfast, lunch, and coffee breaks on each day, and a wine reception on the first night are included with your ticket. Where can I park? We suggest that you arrive early -- so that you won't miss any of the great conference content -- and that you will find a parking spot, as they fill up quickly. Attached is a link to Stanford's Visitor Parking guide. What's the refund policy? Full and partial refunds are available under the following schedule: (All refunds are at the discretion of ApplySci) More than 90 days before the conference: 100% refund Between 90 and 45 days before the conference: 50% refund Less than 45 days: No refund It is possible to transfer your registration to another ApplySci conference, or send a substitute attendee, at any time. Thank you We are so happy that you have decided to join our conference, and look forward to including your views in our discussions about solving great health challenges through technology.
