Objectives:  Neuroscientists at all scales, from the cellular to the cognitive and behavioral, are facing increased computational demands. Join us for an overview of how today’s MATLAB can ease these challenges, with specific tools for machine learning, parallel computing, research collaborations, and more. We will also take a deeper dive into how MATLAB tools can be used to scale your applications with parallel and distributed computing and to tackle problems with Big Data.

Thank you for your kind interest: the event is sold-out. We can recommend you come at the door that day as a few seats might still be available.
