Join NEAI for presentations and conversations about topics in artificial intelligence followed by study groups and networking. Share your projects, ask for help, help each other, and collaborate/commiserate over pizza and beer.
This month's Presenter:
Dan Amelio Vazquez-Reina, Ph.D will be doing the talk, "Image segmentation in connectomics: Discovering the wiring of the brain."
Amelio Vázquez-Reina obtained his Ph.D. in computer science from Tufts University in 2012 where his advisor was Professor Eric Miller. Between 2008 and 2012, Amelio was a Research Fellow at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University working on connectomics with professors Hanspeter Pfister and Jeff Lichtman. He obtained his M.Sc. thesis in Electrical Engineering from the University of Alcala (Spain), where his thesis won the INFOGLOBAL award for the Best National M.Sc. thesis from The National Association of Electrical Engineers. He is currently a Scientist at BBN Technologies and his research interests are in computer vision, machine learning and optimization.
Every member is invited to organize notes on their own projects to share and seek collaborative advice. This is a dynamic field, and learning from new people helps spread good ideas fast. Sometimes a better idea can save a year in research.
This group grew out of the 2011 Stanford online AI and ML classes, and has grown to include professionals and academics. Special thanks to our sponsors, particularly Google for hosting our space and Apt Capital for the food and drink.
