London Behaviour Analytics Meeting

Behaviour Analytics Lab - Data Science Institute

Venue: GDO Meeting Room 

Scientists interested in behaviour are increasingly adopting automated imaging and quantitative analysis into their work. Regardless of the species, this entails solving related technical problems from hardware, to computer vision, and data visualisation as well as conceptual problems such as how to identify representations and features that capture the essence of behaviour without over simplifying. There are many groups in London working on behaviour across the full range of model organisms and humans but there is not currently a good way of brining them together. An informal workshop-style meeting at the DSI would be an excellent opportunity to share expertise, make new connections and, start collaborations.
