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 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.
This lesson gives an in-depth introduction of ethics in the field of artificial intelligence, particularly in the context of its impact on humans and public interest. As the healthcare sector becomes increasingly affected by the implementation of ever stronger AI algorithms, this lecture covers key interests which must be protected going forward, including privacy, consent, human autonomy, inclusiveness, and equity.
This lesson describes a definitional framework for fairness and health equity in the age of the algorithm. While acknowledging the impressive capability of machine learning to positively affect health equity, this talk outlines potential (and actual) pitfalls which come with such powerful tools, ultimately making the case for collaborative, interdisciplinary, and transparent science as a way to operationalize fairness in health equity.
This lesson provides an overview of self-supervision as it relates to neural data tasks and the Mine Your Own vieW (MYOW) approach.
This lesson provides a conceptual overview of the rudiments of machine learning, including its bases in traditional statistics and the types of questions it might be applied to. The lesson was presented in the context of the BrainHack School 2020.
This lesson provides a hands-on, Jupyter-notebook-based tutorial to apply machine learning in Python to brain-imaging data.
This hands-on tutorial walks you through DataJoint platform, highlighting features and schema which can be used to build robost neuroscientific pipelines.
This lecture covers how to make modeling workflows FAIR by working through a practical example, dissecting the steps within the workflow, and detailing the tools and resources used at each step.
This lesson discusses both state-of-the-art detection and prevention schema in working with neurodegenerative diseases.
This lecture provides an overview of some of the essential concepts in neuropharmacology (e.g. receptor binding, agonism, antagonism), an introduction to pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics, and an overview of the drug discovery process relative to diseases of the central nervous system.
