7th Annual Neurophotonics Center Symposium

January 17 @ 8:00 am - 5:30 pm EST

Neurophotonics Center Symposium

Machine Learning and Photonics in the Neurosciences

January 17, 2024 from 830am till 600pm

665 Commonwealth Ave, 17th Floor

Computing and Data Sciences Building

Boston University

The last two decades have witnessed a rapid rise in advanced optical methods for imaging the brain at incredible precision and scale, alongside an explosive growth in powerful machine learning approaches for extracting new insights from neuroscientific data. This symposium aims to bring together researchers working at the intersections of machine learning, photonics, and neuroscience to discuss recent advances and ongoing challenges.

Some of the questions to be addressed will be:

1) How are advances in machine learning enhancing experimental methods?

2) How can advances in machine learning be combined with photonics data to offer greater insight into brain function?

3) How can our evolving understanding of brain function inform the development of machine learning methods?

By assembling a diverse group of speakers, representing a wide range of expertise in these rapidly evolving fields, we hope to underscore the importance of multidisciplinary, collaborative research in overcoming current challenges in understanding normal brain function and its dysfunction in disease.
