Join AI-Mind at the Human Brain Project Summit 2023

After a virtual meeting in 2021, this year’s edition of the Human Brain Project (HBP) Summit is held as an in-person event and takes place in Marseille, France, from 28 to 31 March 2023. Bringing together researchers, policymakers, media and the general public, the #HBPSummit provides an open forum for stimulating exchange across scientific fields, including neurosciences, health and applications in clinical medicine, as well as brain-driven technologies.

Celebrating the ten-year of the HBP concluding in September 2023, the event organised under the banner “Achievements and Future of Digital Brain Research”, will showcase the achievements of the HBP through scientific lectures, debates, a science market, poster presentations and other sessions, including one dedicated to the partnering projects (PPs).

From 76 projects collaborating with HBP, two have been selected to be presented on the last day of the summit – Friday, 31 March, one of which is AI-Mind. Dr Ira Haraldsen (Oslo University Hospital), the AI-Mind coordinator and Dr Ricardo Bruña (Universidad Complutense de Madrid) coordinating EEG data extraction will present the scope of the project, its aims and progress with their talk “Intelligent digital tools for screening of brain connectivity and dementia risk estimation in people affected by mild cognitive impairment”.

Using the opportunity to engage with various audiences, the AI-Mind communication team prepared different materials to inform about the project, its aims and ongoing work. A poster featuring the AI-Mind concept as well as data collection and management will be displayed and flyers about the project distributed.

The #HBPSummit promises to be a memorable conference for those at the forefront of European advances in the field of neurosciences, health, and applications in clinical medicine, as well as brain-derived technologies.

AI-Mind representation

Dr Ira Haraldsen has been affiliated with OUS for over nine years and throughout her career has held various leadership roles. As the AI-Mind coordinator, she is responsible for the overall coordination, communication and management of the AI-Mind project, playing a crucial role in guiding the consortium’s efforts.

Dr Ricardo Bruña, an expert in electroencephalogram (EEG) signal processing, magnetoencephalography (MEG) and functional connectivity, is involved in AI-Mind’s Work Package 2  – Data Management and Feature Extraction. He has been working at the Laboratory for Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience since 2011, concentrating on the development of methods to clean and analyse electrophysiological signals as measured by EEG and MEG.
