The Chen Center for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (DataSAI) is led by Caltech professors Lior Pachter (BS '94), Bren Professor of Computational Biology and Computing and Mathematical Sciences, Pietro Perona, Allen E. Puckett Professor of Electrical Engineering and Yisong Yue, Professor of Computing and Mathematical Sciences.
Breakthrough techniques in neuroscience are generating enormous data sets, such as recordings of the activity of thousands of neurons over time, videos of complex animal behavior, and so on. But often, neuroscientists have not had formal training in the methods of data science and machine learning required to analyze and interpret such "big data." The Chen Center for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (DataSAI) aims to address this knowledge gap through a number of different programs, including an immersive 2 week summer school for students to learn how to interpret large data sets, access to the technical equipment to generate and analyze data. The inaugural Data Science and AI for Neuroscience Summer School will take place July 5 - 15, 2022. For details about this year's summer school visit here.
