Neuroscience Meets Data Science

Frankfurt School of Finance & Management

##PLEASE REGISTER HERE## www.bit.ly/325IeBj Brightest minds of Neuroscience and Data Science meet and share experience in a series of talks and networking. What you will experience: - How do the two fields enrich each other? - How does data science help solve challenges in scientific research but also in real life industry? - How can researchers make the transition and find a job in industry? (maybe even at this event 🙂) PROGRAMME 1830 Doors open 1900 Talks start 2100 Networking 2230 End TALKS 3D IMAGING AND ML: MAPPING BRAIN CIRCUITS The human brain is insanely complex with an astounding 86 billion neurons. How are they connected and how far away are we from understanding it? A combination of 3D electron microscopy and ML helps us in this quest. Alessandro Motta, PhD Student at Max Planck Institute for Brain Research in the Department of Connectomics led by Prof. Helmstaedter, will enchant the audience with beautiful 3D images of reconstructed mouse brain neuronal wires and will show how neural networks can be reconstructed from terabyte-scale 3D images using ML-based tools. Also, he will tell about the challenges when working with huge datasets. www.linkedin.com/in/alessandro-motta-0a884770 www.brain.mpg.de/research/helmstaedter-department ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND NEUROSCIENCE RESEARCH: MUTUAL INSPIRATION Prof. Jochen Triesch, Johanna Quandt Professor for Theoretical Life Sciences at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies, will discuss connections between AI and Neuroscience research. On the one hand, AI can help us make sense of data from Neuroscience experiments. On the other hand, a better understanding of the "tricks" that brains use can inspire new approaches to AI. Let the AI Neuroscience driven revolution begin and vice versa! www.linkedin.com/in/jochen-triesch-3662a149 www.fias.institute THE JOURNEY OF A PROTEIN You thought neuronal networks and how they are connected was difficult? Wait until you see what’s inside a neuron… Not much. Just 50 billion proteins. Fabio Sartori, PhD Student at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research in the Department of Theory of Neural Dynamics led by Dr. Tchumatchenko, will show the complexity of protein movement inside a neuronal cell. He will guide us through the dynamic journey of a single neuronal protein from the center to the periphery in a reconstructed neuron. It looks like there is a traffic jam and distracted people taking the wrong train everywhere one goes! After this talk, you will never think of neurons in the same way again! www.linkedin.com/in/fabio-sartori-5a7a2064 www.brain.mpg.de/research/theory-of-neural-dynamics-group EVERYTHING YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT HOW NEUROSCIENCE RESEARCH CAN HELP PURSUE A CAREER IN DATA SCIENCE CONSULTING (BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK) Our last speaker, Georg Turi, Head of AI & Analytics Center of Excellence for Life Sciences & Healthcare at Cognizant who focuses on AI-powered Precision Medicine and Health Intelligence solutions, will give a talk about his career journey in Data Science aimed to support interested (neuro-) scientists in their consideration to pursue a career in Data Science. Based on his experience, he will address how his research background in Neuroscience helped him combine his passion for number crunching in Life Sciences with a career path in Data Science Consulting. Last but not least, he will give a brief overview about best practices and interesting AI topics in Health & Life Sciences in his team. www.linkedin.com/in/georg-turi-5092bb79 http://www.cognizant.com/ai/ SUPPORTERS Thank you to TDWI|www.tdwi.eu/verein and SAS|www.sas.com/de_de for supporting our community, our kind host Frankfurt School|www.frankfurt-school.de/home/research/centres/ai-lab and Max Planck Institute for Brain Research|www.brain.mpg.de for content.
