ADAPT Academic Collaborator Giovanni Di Liberto runs successful Cognition and Natural Sensory Processing workshop for the second year in a row.

Giovanni Di Liberto an Assistant Professor in Intelligent Systems in the School of Computer Science and Statistics at Trinity College Dublin and Academic Collaborator here at ADAPT organised and coordinated the Cognition and Natural Sensory Processing workshop in July, as part of a bigger open science initiative in the field of cognitive science and neural data analysis.

The online workshop which had around 100 participants and received a sponsorship from mBrainTrain, an electroencephalography manufacturer specialised in mobile devices. CNSP consisted of five sessions held over three days engaging the participants in learnings like:

  • Theoretical insights into system identification and multivariate linear methods for neural signal analysis
  • Practical guidelines on how to prepare, process, and interpret data
  • Practical knowledge of tools for neural signal analysis such as the mTRF-Toolbox

As several workshop participants indicated their interest in getting involved in the open science initiative, the future CNSP activities will also include projects beyond the time-frame of a workshop. Starting from a new project supervised by Giovanni in TCD and carried out in BCBL and TCD by Giorgio Piazza, who was awarded the mBrainTrain travel scholarship. Giovanni was also invited to give an oral presentation, and as a team leader at the CogHear workshop in Maryland last June and at the Virtual Conference on Computational Audiology in early July.

Prof Giovanni speaking about the successful workshop this year said: ‘In the long run, CNSP aims to become a widely used platform for open science, providing a standardisation, datasets, and libraries for neural data analysis, as well as connecting researchers across the world and supporting new scientific investigations.’
