Are you interested in collaborating on exciting innovative mini-projects during Brainhack at Campus Biotech?
Brainhack is a 2 ½ day hackathon on brain technologies, mostly brain imaging but not only. To participate, you don’t need to know anything specific about the brain, just to bring yours! We welcome anyone from coders to doctors.
Contrarily to traditional hackathons during which teams compete, brainhacks are collaborative: all teams work on different projects and we’ll have more than a half-dozen for you to choose from. Project proposals just started being collected so right now you could attend the event in two ways:
- as a participant to have fun on any project you’ll see presented during the project pitches on Thursday (see for example the first registered projects below): to do this please register here
- as a project instigator to bring your own project idea (it could be anything from a toy project via an educational project to a mini-research project, cf previous and current projects): you are more than welcome to do so by filling this form (feel free to email Michael Dayan: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any question)
Projects we just started collecting range from machine learning to identify brain states, via generating music from MRI signals, to developing a multiplayer game reading brain signals.
All these projects we will take place at Campus Biotech on November Friday 8th and Saturday 9th, with a presentation of all the projects and a get together the day before on Thursday 7th at 5pm (cf full program here). If you want to join we’ll take care of you with free breakfast, free lunch and unlimited coffee. There will also be optional social drinks planned for Friday night.
For more information, and to join the Brainhack, just check out our website at brainhack.ch.
Please note: Brainhack will be part of the well-advertised worldwide Brainhack Global series, so if you already know you want to attend this event, do not wait to book your spot!
Looking forward to seeing you there!
