Save the Date! Hands-on course on neural data science

Logo Statistics Summer school

It is our pleasure to announce a Hands-on course on neural data science. The course is part of the XIII Summer School in Statistics organized by the Facultat de Matemàtiques i Estadística (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, UPC) and the Universitat de Barcelona (UB).

Venue: UPC campus in Barcelona (Spain)

Dates: 1st to 5th of July 2019.

Course Description: (

The course focuses on several aspects of data science applied to data recorded from the brain: statistical modeling, graph theory, statistical analysis and machine learning. The course is based on a learn-by-coding philosophy: the students will develop a data-driven project throughout the course to understand and apply some of the taught techniques under the supervision of the teachers. Many methods explained during this course can be applied to different data outside brain sciences, so previous experience in neuroscience is not required.

The course includes statistical modeling of time series, graph theory (with GAlib package) and machine learning (with scikit-learn package).
