We are entering a new era of innovation in which Neuroscience and AI will reshape traditional industries like healthcare, business, and communication. It is an exciting future, but also poses new challenges regarding ethics and workflow.
Neuromarketing is a new field which uses medical technologies to see your brain’s responses to marketing stimuli. Brain activity can tell why consumers buy certain things and what part of the brain is telling them to do so.
Our mission at The Brainstorms Scientific is to make good science visible and bring fresh ideas to the table. During the pitches, we're showcasing eight neuroscience and neurotech startups who have novel solutions for mental health, neurology, and neuro-inspired AI & BCIs.
A designated slot for you to explore the festival, talk to other people and to visit the startup booths
In this talk, I will present an overview of recent research on the “human” side of algorithms. I will focus on how decision makers perceive recommendations made by algorithms and on whether they are likely to follow these recommendations.
An interactive session showing how to use expoze.io, a machine learning platform that helps you create content that will be noticed. Best suited for advertisers, content creators (ads, creative agencies), brands/brand managers, UI, UX developers and researchers interested in eye tracking or visual attention.
An overview of the recent efforts in Spiking Neural Networks, in both algorithm and hardware, addressing the limitations and advantages of spike-driven learning and computations.
The self is grounded in the multisensory processing of bodily inputs, and highlight the great importance of the sense of touch. Bodily perception can be altered in different patient populations and transformative technologies be used to investigate, treat and restore such perceptions, bringing the body into digital restoring experiences.
Swarm robotics is a technology to coordinate a large number of simple robots like insects, ants and other animals where swarm behaviour occurs. Such technologies are already applied in IoT, smart mobility, smart grids, Industry 4.0 and smart houses. Swarms of cyber-physical systems increase dynamics, connectivity, and complexity - calling for features like adaptability, scalability, robustness, and self-configuration - features that can be provided with nature-inspired swarm intelligence.
Starting a science or technology-based company is a huge leap into the unknown for academic researchers. IST cube will share insights and practical tips on making the transition and preparing your startup to be investment ready.
Ever wondered how to tackle the European public funding jungle? Where to start without wasting hours on program guidelines, asking the wrong questions? This provide you with a quick guide on how to assess actual funding opportunities and find your business' perfect program fit.
The FruitPunch AI Mental Health hackathon used their AI & data science skills to analyse public statistics and language datasets to get insight in the severity of the mental health crisis that came with COVID-19 restrictions. In this interactive session, they would like to discuss their findings with you.
Stories we are told about how to live can make many of us miserable, and will discuss ways in which we can avoid these narrative traps and be a little bit happier.
This talk will consider the relationships between sleep and disease, examples of how sleep consolidation can lead to better health, and how measures of sleep could be used as a powerful diagnostic across the health spectrum.
From EEG caps, to ‘racist algorithms’ to mental health & neurological disorder disparities, neuroscience has a big role to play in ensuring an equitable society.In this talk we will address the importance of inclusive design and invention, looking at the real world consequences for Black people when this isn’t taken into account. We must take inclusion seriously, join us in this fight.
We all share a genetic program for making a human brain but the way that program plays out is affected by random processes unique in each person, even in identical twins. What makes you the way you areand what makes each of us different from everyone else?
Men and women are different when it comes to brain and mental disease risks, frequency, severity, symptomatology and even response to treatments. Our goal is to clearly identify such differences in diseases, diagnosis, and treatments, as well as novel technologies, and leverage them for better solutions. Sex and gender differences are the first steps towards precision medicine.
The way stressful life events affect people is a complex process specific to each individual. How we neurologically process stressful memories, regulate emotions and cognitively appraise the experience all play a part in this delicate process. This interactive session allows you to reflect on how these factors impact the coping strategies you use, especially during a global pandemic.
BR41N.IO is a brainstorming and collaborative marathon designed to be a learning experience for developers, technologists, engineers, students, artists, and scientists who cram and build brain-computer interface (BCI) applications together in teams.
Anyone can participate who has interests in BMI, BCI, robotics, AR, VR, machine learning, computing, sensors, human-machine interface systems, control, signal processing, big data, haptics, rehabilitation, and similar areas.
Participants do not have to be a BMI expert to participate on a team! Interdisciplinary teams with a combination of BMI and non-BMI skills are often successful in building solutions and producing working prototypes.
Projects include: Smart Home, Dream Paint, Flight Control, Stroke Rehab Data Analysis, Locked-in Patient Data Analysis, Unresponsive Wakefulness Syndrome Data Analysis amongst others
1st BR41N.IO Prize: $ 500
2nd BR41N.IO Prize: $ 300
3rd BR41N.IO Prize: $ 200
1st BR41N.IO Prize: $ 500
