On October 15th, 16th, and 17th, 2018, the McGill University ‘Healthy Brains for Healthy Lives’ initiative is hosting a 3-day workshop entitled “Machine Learning for the Cognitive Neurosciences”, whose objective will be to introduce scientists to both the conceptual and practical rudiments of machine learning as applied to neuroimaging data.
Though attendees are expected to have a general familiarity with brain-imaging and conventional statistical analyses, no programming or machine-learning knowledge is assumed. For this reason, the first day is entirely focused on introducing the software environment that will serve for the practical exercises during the workshop, including some basics of the python programming language and several python-based packages for scientific computing. Days 2 and 3 will feature a series of presentations on machine learning and its scientific application to brain-imaging during the mornings, followed by practical exercises and further elaboration during the afternoons.
