Jan 2 Wednesday - Jan 9 Wednesday, 2019
The Winter course on Machine Intelligence and Brain Research (MIBR) at IIT Madras is to be held between Jan 2 - Jan 9th 2019. The course is open for registration and the registration link can be found here
IIT Madras students (enrolled in Btech-Final year, M-tech and Dual Degree) can take this course for credit Course ID: 7123: 2 Credits). Details and Expression of interest can be found here.
The course is expected to provide an future opportunity to work with the Chair Professors and Faculty of CCBR undertaking cutting edge research projects (MTech and Dual Degree only) on Machine Intelligence and Neuroscience.
IIT M students who are only interested in the workshop and tutorial but not the course need to register here
There is a limited number of travel grants available for students from outside chennai. For more information, please see contact below
Artificial neural network based machine learning architectures (software and hardware) are of great current interest in academia and industry. At the same time, owing to international brain initiatives, there are also rapid advances happening in Neuroscience. This interdisciplinary course is based on the premise that a two-way interchange between neuroscience and machine learning/AI will be mutually productive. The course focuses on four main areas of robust interactions between engineering and neuroscience (Vision, Speech/Audition, Natural Language, and Reinforcement Learning) and also includes related topics (classical Machine Learning, Hardware, Statistical Physics).
The CCBR is an interdisciplinary center at IIT Madras focused on a two-way interchange between neuroscience and engineering.
The CCBR-IITM is comprised of faculty across several departments on campus and three visiting chair professors (Partha P Mitra, CSHL; Anand Raghunathan, Purdue; and Mriganka Sur, MIT).
The workshop component of the course will consists of pedagogical lectures and tutorials by invited speakers, foster national and international collaborations in the subject area. An outreach component of the workshop will include participants from the computer industry and medical research. The registration can be done here: for IITM students undertaking the course
As part of the course, we are organising an art exhibition titled "Brain and Machine Intelligence inspired art". Entries for the exhibition can be submitted here.Confirmed Speakers for the course The course includes lectures from
