Join the IEEE Brain Community for free as an IEEE Computer Society Member
In 2020, the Computer Society’s Board of Governors formally agreed to join the IEEE Brain Technical Community. As the leader in computing and emerging technologies, the Computer Society’s collaboration with IEEE Brain and its co-sponsors, helps to advance innovations in brain machine interfaces (BMIs), bioelectronics, computational neuroscience and signal/image processing, neuromorphic computing, and neuroethics.
IEEE Brain was formed in 2015 to create a technical community to facilitate cross-disciplinary collaboration and coordination to advance research, standardization, and development of engineering and technology to improve our understanding of the brain to treat diseases and to improve human condition. As an IEEE-wide effort, IEEE Brain unites engineering and computing expertise across IEEE Societies and Councils relevant to neuroscience, and provides an avenue for IEEE to work with multiple constituencies in academia, industry and government to incubate and sponsor new activities, projects, and standards that facilitate bringing neurotechnology to market in an ethical and responsible manner.
IEEE Brain sponsors several events and provides a host of resources to the community. Check out the following events and resources.
- The IEEE Brain Podcast Series and Video Series contain interviews with some of the top subject matter experts in neurotechnology research and commercialization.
- The IEEE Brain Webinar Series provides a point of learning for engineering and technology advancements that improve our understanding of the brain.
- As a flagship event, the IEEE Brain Workshop on Advanced Neurotechnologies provides an interactive and network platform to encourage exchange of ideas with leading researchers, medical and industry professionals.
- IEEE Brain publication includes the Future Neural Therapeutics technology roadmap white paper that identifies key challenges and advances required for next generation closed-loop neurotechnologies and the online Newsletter that features recent breakthroughs in research.
- Hackathons are fun, collaborative hands-on learning for building brain-computer interface applications or perform data analysis.
- IEEE Brain also supports activities to drive commercialization, including standards development, neurotech entrepreneurs workshop and neuroethics efforts.
