Interested in AI? Join our group! This group is dedicated to the application of neuroscience, artificial intelligence, medicine, and computer science towards the further understanding and development of artificial intelligence. We also focus on developing the New York MedTech industry and fostering open source projects that support it. Contact the organizers about it.

The goal is to create a laid-back place where the spirit of the coffeehouse culture of the Enlightenment meets the modern hackerspace; where people from different disciplines who wouldn't normally meet can exchange ideas, experiment with hands-on systems, and have a good time.

We hope this can be the melting pot of neuroscientists, hackers, programmers, doctors, mathematicians, artists, lawyers, post docs in any science, bio-staticians, entrepreneurs, and the average person who is interested in learning about advances in artificial intelligence applications in health (and adjacent data-intensive fields).
