Title: Ongoing research on Computational Neurosciences and Cybernetics Systems (CONCYS) at Federal University Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Brazil
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Dante Barone, Institute of Informatics, Federal University Rio Grande do Sul. Porto Alegre - Brazil
Computational Neuroscience (CN) is the field of study in which mathematical tools and neuroscience theories are used to investigate how the brain operates, both normal and abnormal. It is truly an interdisciplinary domain, where many disciplines contribute, such as Computer Science, Neuroscience, Psychology, Mathematics, Physics, Philosophy, among others. Its main aim is to build biological and plausible models able to reproduce brain functions. Based on numerical modelling, CN supports theoretical neuroscience trying to understand some brain phenomena through computational simulations. Thanks to the quick grow of computing power, CN has achieved some important advances in its effort for simulate large networks of the brain. Projects such as the european Human-Brain Project (HBP), Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN), USA – Brain Project demonstrate how CN is a consolidate and growing research area. In the last decades, CN has been playing an important role. In order to give a broader view of the area, some important factors to the scientific community interested on CN will be presented as main conferences, vehicles for publications, associations and etc, evidently having Computer Science on mind. In this context, a latin american perspective on CN will also be presented. Last year the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), the main research public and federal university in Brazil has organized the first edition of Latin-American Workshop in Computational Neuroscience (I LAWCN), which had prof. Barone as the general chair, with three main topics: a) Neuroscience, b) Neuroengineering and c) Artificial Intelligence and related techniques. The Proceedings were published by Springer. LAWCN contributed as a starting point for the creation at the Informatics Institute of UFRGS the Computational Neuroscience and Cybernetics Systems laboratory (CONCYS). Currently the research carried out in this lab includes topics such as Working Memory, Psycholinguistics, Natural Language Processing (NLP), electroencephalography (EEG), Eye-Tracking, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Human Factors and Neuroergonomics, Computational Modelling and Artificial Intelligence, mainly related to Deep Learning issues. Then, the aim of this presentation is introducing the audience into CN, giving an overview through its history, influence, research and initiatives (as the mentioned above) giving an emphasis on our research at CONCYS as well.
