Join the upcoming MCCHE Precision Convergence Webinar Series for a captivating exploration of interpretable brain models. This enlightening webinar, titled 'Moving towards Interpretable Models of Functioning Brains For Adaptive Real-World Behavior and Sustainable Health', brings together experts in the fields of neuroscience, technology, policy, and more, including our group leader, Prof. Petra Ritter.
The webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, September 27, 2023, at 17:00 CEST and will be conducted online, ensuring accessibility for a global audience.
Hosted by The McGill Centre for the Convergence of Health and Economics (MCCHE) in collaboration with The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, this event promises to shed light on the intricate workings of the human brain and its implications for real-world behavior and sustainable health.
High-Level Panel Discussion
Following Prof. Raghu Machiraju's lecture from Ohio State University, the webinar will host an engaging panel discussion featuring distinguished experts.
Prof. Petra Ritter will join this high-level panel, contributing her expertise to the discourse. Other distinguished panelists include:
Together, this panel will provide diverse perspectives and insights into the topics at hand.
Abstract of the Talk
Prof. Machiraju's talk will provide a deep dive into The Virtual Brain Platform, an essential component of the EU-led e-Brain initiative, and will explore the brain's modeling as a dynamic and adaptive system, with an emphasis on state-space models. These models have been instrumental in explaining the functioning of normal, dyscalculic, and dyslexic brains during mental arithmetic tasks. Prof. Machiraju will also discuss their application in broader decision-making tasks.
The talk will conclude with a visionary proposal for an "e-brain-in-a-box," underpinned by an integrative architecture, like C-Brain.
