National Academies Workshop: Exploring the Bidirectional Relationship between Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience

National Academies Workshop: Exploring the Bidirectional Relationship between Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience
The intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and neuroscience holds tremendous promise for advancements in brain health. To explore this complex bidirectional relationship, Cohen Veterans Bioscience (CVB) is proud to have our Founder, Magali Haas, MD, PhD co-chair the upcoming workshop, hosted by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, “Exploring the Bidirectional Relationship Between Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience.” CVB has been a long-term member of the NASEM Neuroscience Forum.

Day 1 – March 25, 2024, 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm ET
Day 2 – March 26, 2024, 9:30 am – 4:00 pm ET

National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine,
500 5th St NW, Washington, DC 20001

More Information:

This 1.5-day public workshop will gather a diverse group of leaders and experts across the neuroscience and AI ecosystems to further the conversation on current and potential use of AI in neuroscience. Co-chairs Magali Haas, MD, PhD and Terrence Sejnowski, PhD of The Salk Institute for Biological Studies, will moderate the discussions throughout the workshop. Participants can expect conversations at the workshop to center around the use of AI to enhance our understanding of the brain, the utility and limitations of AI in neuroscience research, and the crucial role neuroscience plays in providing regulators and the public with knowledge and resources for the responsible use of AI in research, clinical, and general applications.

Quote from Lee Lancashire, PhD

For Cohen Veterans Bioscience, this workshop aligns closely with our data science team’s efforts to address the limitations of current AI technologies and achieve a deeper understanding and application of these technologies in clinical and translational research. Our Chief Innovation and Data Science Officer, Lee Lancashire, PhD, will participate in a panel about R&D considerations for neuroscience and AI. Our participation in this workshop also allows CVB to take a proactive approach in shaping the future of AI in neuroscience, furthering our mission to support high-impact scientific initiatives including multi-modal modeling efforts using the BRAINCommons, a secure cloud-based data-sharing and exploration platform designed to harness the power of big data and empower the brain health research community. CVB’s initiatives aim to develop lasting solutions for patients living with the effects of PTSD and TBI.

This workshop presents a unique opportunity for professionals, researchers, and enthusiasts to engage in conversations at the intersection of AI and neuroscience. 

  • Explore the contributions neuroscience has made to the development of AI and the utilization of AI to further understanding of the brain.
  • Discuss the utility and limitations of AI in basic, translational, and clinical neuroscience research.
  • Examine the potential for autonomy and agency in AI systems, and the associated implications for the field of neuroscience.
  • Discuss the key role of neuroscience in equipping regulators and the public with knowledge and resources for the responsible use of AI in research, clinical, and general applications.
  • Consider research priorities and public education needs regarding the role of neuroscience in AI and AI in neuroscience research.
