CodeNeuro is about understanding the brain, and the computing technology we need to get there. We're bringing together neuroscientists, data scientists, hackers, and visualizers to help tackle one of the most fascinating problems in biology — and hopefully change the way we think about data in the process.
Our first event delved into large-scale mapping of neural activity, distributed machine learning techniques for wrangling terabytes of data, web interfaces for interactive visualization, and everything in between.
