Brainhack Global Event
The Mind Research Network will participate in this year’s Brainhack Global event March 2 - March 4, 2017!
A Brainhack (or Hackathon) offers the opportunity to work on specific research questions and projects with colleagues in a concentrated amount of time. You will spend a lot of the time working and “hacking” on your specific research project, but there will also be talks, lectures, and video conferences with other sites across the globe. You are encouraged to think about a research project before the Hackathon starts, but you can also find inspiration in the talks provided, chat with colleagues you have never talked to before, and get creative on site. The Brainhack Global - Albuquerque will focus on Brain Dynamics and Issues of Dynamic Functional Connectivity. So far, we have confirmed speakers who are experts in this field of research: Dr. Vince Calhoun, Dr. Julia Stephen, Dr. Sergey Plis, and Dr. Maziar Yaesoubi (check this page for further announcements regarding confirmed speakers). Talks will cover introductions to dynamic functional connectivity and window-less dynamic connectivity, as well as a new approach of deep learning algorithms to explore brain dynamics.
