EBRAINS CoCreate: Artificial Intelligence is a transdisciplinary R&I workshop that is worth your time.
Updated 29/11 2021 by Anna Kierkegaard, open for applications until 25th of November 2021.
Do you want to explore the intersection of neuroscience and artificial intelligence? Do you want to be a part of the next step in brain-related AI meanwhile building your professional network? Then join us to Co-Create a roadmap with the research and innovation (R&I) activities of tomorrow. The roadmap will be strategic and founded on a shared vision of the future. Currently R&I can be restricted by institutional thoughts, disciplinary boundaries, or specific interests. We invite you to collaborate across disciplines, national borders and spheres of research, practice, industry and civil society to gain a fuller understanding of the needs of artificial intelligence in relation to EBRAINS.eu, neuroscience and neuro-inspired technologies. We believe that multiple views and expertise is needed in a hyper-complex reality that still gets more specialized.
EBRAINS CoCreate Artificial Intelligence has already started, however we’re happy to welcome anyone with interest in the subject for our last networking and dissemination workshop the 27th of January. At this workshop the results of the process will be presented, and continuous work with the suggested activities discussed.
If you would like to join the process as a participant, please feel free to register in this link as well, and we encourage you to listen to all the podcasts and look at the outcome of previous workshops as well.
We start by creating a shared knowledge framework in the information phase. This phase is followed by the vision workshop where we will identify shared visions for the future of AI in neuroscience and neuromorphic technologies. From here we start the roadmap phase consisting of two workshops, where we create strategic roadmaps that supports the shared vision. The roadmaps will be publicly available after the workshop, and credit all contributing participants. It will be disseminated to relevant collaborators in the last phase of the workshop. For more information on what to expect from EBRAINS CoCreate, listen to the facilitator podcast episode by Aske Palsberg and Anna Kierkegaard: Link. or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and write CoCreate in the subject line.
