Dear community,

The Algonauts Project has launched its first Challenge, Explaining the Human Visual Brain<http://algonauts.csail.mit.edu/>, inviting you to come up with a computer model of how the human brain sees and recognizes objects. Participants who develop the best models will be invited to present their work at a workshop July 19-20 at MIT in Cambridge, Mass.

The overall goal of the Algonauts Project is to explain brain data with computational models, and to bring biological and AI researchers together on a common platform to advance human and machine intelligence research. To enter the 2019 Explaining the Human Visual Brain Challenge, download the development kit and data here: http://algonauts.csail.mit.edu/challenge.html

The deadline to submit a model is June 22, 2019.

Please also join us July 19-20 at MIT for the Algonauts’ Explaining the Human Visual Brain Workshop. The workshop will feature student tutorials, presentations from Challenge winners, and talks by pioneers in neuroscience, cognitive science and computer science. Good luck with your submission and we look forward to seeing you at the workshop in July!

Best,
The Algonauts Project team

Organizers:
Radoslaw Cichy, FUB
Aude Oliva, MIT
Gemma Roig, SUDT
