Today, we celebrate the 14th of July, a significant day in France known as National Day. As we honor this occasion, let us take a moment to appreciate France’s remarkable advancements in the field of research. Renowned as one of the world’s leading nations in scientific exploration, France continues to push the boundaries of knowledge and innovation. From cutting-edge discoveries to groundbreaking technological developments, the country has consistently demonstrated its commitment to pushing the frontiers of scientific progress. On this auspicious day, let us reflect upon France’s remarkable achievements and acknowledge the profound impact it has made in shaping the world of research today.
As of July 2023, there are several events and courses related to the convergence of artificial intelligence and neuroscience in France:
- Neurology Congress 2023: This conference aims to facilitate knowledge sharing and foster a community focused on the latest advancements in the medical and scientific field, including neurology and neuroscience. It will be held in Paris, France.
- AI4Health Summer School 2023: Organized by the French Health Data Hub and some of France’s leading AI research institutions, this event will take place from July 3rd to 7th. It will provide a hands-on introduction to artificial intelligence and machine learning and how it can be used for data acquisition, analysis, and modeling brain activity and behavior.
- 3rd Int. Advanced Course & Symposium on Artificial Intelligence & Neuroscience: This interdisciplinary event will feature leading scientists from AI and neuroscience, providing a special opportunity to learn about the latest developments in the field. It will be held in Grasmere, Lake District, England, which is close to France.
In addition, a scoping review was conducted in 2023 on the convergence of artificial intelligence and neuroscience towards the diagnosis of neurological disorders. The review focused on the role of neuroscience in advancing AI research, highlighting the applications of AI in neuroimaging methods and tools. Finally, the CAJAL training program offers a course on machine learning for neuroscience, which provides a hands-on introduction to artificial intelligence and machine learning and how it can be used for data acquisition, analysis, and modeling brain activity and behavior.
