This lesson continues with the second workshop on reproducible science, focusing on additional open source tools for researchers and data scientists, such as the R programming language for data science, as well as associated tools like RStudio and R Markdown. Additionally, users are introduced to Python and iPython notebooks, Google Colab, and are given hands-on tutorials on how to create a Binder environment, as well as various containers in Docker and Singularity.
This lesson consists of a talk about the history and future of academic publishing and the need for transparency, as well as a live demo of an alpha version of NeuroLibre, a preprint server that goes beyond the PDF to complement research articles. This video was part of a virutal QBIN SciComm seminar.
This lesson covers Python applications to data analysis, demonstrating why it has become ubiquitous in data science and neuroscience. The lesson was given in the context of the BrainHack School 2020.
In this hands-on tutorial, Dr. Robert Guangyu Yang works through a number of coding exercises to see how RNNs can be easily used to study cognitive neuroscience questions, with a quick demonstration of how we can train and analyze RNNs on various cognitive neuroscience tasks. Familiarity of Python and basic knowledge of Pytorch are assumed.
