Date Title Summary
2017-04-25 What's New for MATLAB in Neuroscience?

Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering

Seattle, WA 98105
Tuesday, April 25, 2017, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. PDT

Come join Vijay Iyer from Mathworks for a guided tour of MATLAB’s recent enhancements and even help shape tomorrow’s MATLAB with your feedback during the Q&A session.

Seminar starts at 11:00 a.m., lunch and Q&A / feedback session to follow.

Vijay Iyer is the neuroscience community liaison for Mathworks (www.mathworks.com: -> https://www.mathworks.com/), the company responsible for MATLAB and other mathematical analysis tools. Scientific computing is involved in nearly every type of neuroscience study today: from the cognitive to the cellular, from in vivo to in silico. As the boundaries of neuroscience are expanding, so too are the needs and expectations for computing at every scale, from microprocessors to supercomputers. Today’s MATLAB offers many features, Deep Learning, Big Data handling, embedded hardware targets, and more, while striving to make these technologies accessible and productive for neuroscientists and neuroengineers.

Prior to joining Mathworks, Vijay cofounded Vidrio Technologies (vidriotechnologies.com:
-> https://vidriotechnologies.com/), which developed two-photon laser scanning microscope software for use in neuroscience research. This research allowed imaging of the activity and function of the brain at the cellular level including individual cells and even synapses, so he knows full well the needs of the neuroscience research community.

No RSVP is required, but if attendees intend to stay for the lunch Q&A session, please email Scott Ransom at ransom87.uw.edu: -> http://ransom87.uw.edu/ (for a lunch count).
