2019 Workshop entitled How systems learn, change and self-organize: Insights from network science.

May 17-18, 2019

A two day workshop in Bloomington, Indiana, May 17-18, 2019. The Indiana Emerging Area of Research, titled Learning: Brain, Machines and Children, seeks to understand the processes of human developmental change that make us smart and inventive. Understanding the development of human intelligence requires we go deep and wide, drawing on insight from a wide range of scientific disciplines. Accordingly, for our third summer workshop, we seek to focus on and leverage advances in network science and to break through traditional disciplinary boundaries to bring together scientists from many different fields so that we can think together to understand system level processes of change. See Schedule for Workshop here.

Organizers: Richard Betzel and Linda B Smith

EAR team coordinates the Journal Club in Computational Neuroimaging

Meets twice monthly on Fridays in the Gill Center Conference Room 102, 12 noon - 1:00pm

Computational neuroimaging is a multi-disciplinary area of research that applies computational approaches (e.g. network modeling, Bayesian statistical modeling, time series forecasting, advanced reconstruction and analysis techniques) to neuroimaging data with the aim of deepening our understanding of how sensory and cognitive processes are implemented in the brain. This journal club will take an in-depth and critical look at recent papers published in this area. We hope that by examining the methodology, modeling approaches, and tools developed in these papers, we can incorporate them into our own work to broaden and enrich computational neuroimaging research at Indiana University.

For more information please contact Richard Betzel, Amanda Mejia , or Franco Pestilli. Communication related to this journal club will be managed via the following mailing list:

2018 Workshop on Learning: Deep, fast and shallow learning in humans and machines

May 14-15, 2018

A two day workshop in Bloomington, Indiana, May 14-15, 2018. The workshop will bring together leaders of computational and experimental science on learning in humans and artificial systems. We aim to achieve diversity along several dimensions: geographic, stage of career, gender, field, and methods. The workshop will provide training to about fifty students from psychology, cognitive science, neuroscience and computer science. Student travel awards will be offered. See Schedule for Workshop here.
This workshop is supported by a grant from the William K. and Katherine W. Estes Fund.

Organizers: Franco Pestilli, Rob Goldstone and Linda B Smith

Meets 4:00-5:00 on Thursdays at 1106 Luddy

This is a new talk series for our "Center for Algorithms and Machine Learning/Intelligent and Interactive Systems/Emerging Areas of Research (CAML/IIS/EAR) Seminar that began in the Fall 2017 semester. This seminar will resume full force again in Spring 2020.

2017 Workshop on Egocentric Vision: From Science to Real-World Applications

June 3-5, 2017 at Indiana University, Bloomington

This two day workshop brings together leading scholars from human and computer vision, to explore opportunities for collaboration and to help plan the future of this emerging area. The specific goals are to define emerging areas of collaborative research and aplications ready for breakthrough advances, to specify key challenges that need to be solved and to form new collaborative networks to pursue these areas of opportunity.

Organizers: David Crandall, Michael Ryoo, Linda B Smith and Chen Yu
