BR41N.IO in GRAZ // Sept 17-18 2017

What’s happening?
The goal of the BR41N.IO hackathon series is to bring people of different professions together. Engineers, programmers, artists, physicians, graphic designers, everyone is welcome! During the hackathons, participants will work together and learn from each other in interdisciplinary teams. Together we merge well established hardware and software with great minds in order to create and develop a new, innovative and exceptional ideas. The party organizing this hackathon is GT-tec medical engineering.

What will G-tec help us with?
From their supportive role in earlier hackathons G-tec learned that setting up the equipment is the greatest challenge for people experimenting with EEG. Therefore they have now developed an approach that enables teams to quickly get the whole technological calibration and set up out of the way. Because G-tec provides this help, teams can spend their time on really organizing their concepts instead of getting tangled up in wires and endless code.

OK, but who can participate?
Everyone! If you have an interest in working with brainwaves, neural interfaces or new inventions, and you want to learn or do more with this, then this event is for you! The hackathon is an opportunity for all participants to come together in a creative, social space to experiment with innovative and novel analysis techniques and applications of brainwave data.

Don’t worry if you are not an expert in this field. We will provide online tutorial material in advance. During the event workshops will also be organized to help teams develop their projects. At the event we also aim to provide artistic, scientific and technical mentors and helpers to support you. By joining a team, you’ll get the opportunity to work intensely with new people from a range of backgrounds to explore, collaborate, converse, and create together over the course of the weekend.

Sounds good! Where do I sign up?

Hack The Brain Prague 2016

“Hack the Brain Prague Hackathon” (HBPH 2016) has the specific aim of supporting co-operation between artists and scientists in BNCI (Brain/Neural Computer Interaction) related projects. The participants will work together in multidisciplinary teams on projects which they have chosen for themselves. During three days of intensive collaborative work they will be encouraged and supported to explore the possibilities and to find novel applications of BNCI systems. We welcome applications from anyone with a neuroscientific or artistic background. It will be an opportunity for you to learn something new about art or the human brain, learn something about yourself, acquire new technical skills and approaches, and also to meet new colleagues. The hackathon’s project based approach is designed to stimulate your imagination and expand ywour horizons. Join us and contribute to the success of this hackathon!

Hack the Brain Amsterdam 2016

Hack the Brain Amsterdam 2016 was about our health: ‘Hack yourself better (or worse)’.

This is the century to unravel the working mechanisms of our mysterious brains. Brain cells and structures as well as live neuronal activity and –connections can be visualised with techniques such as EEG, fMRI, and PET. While neuronal activity can be influenced by techniques like transcranial- and deep brain stimulation.

There is an increasing market for consumer brain-imaging devices. Open the papers or the tv-guide, browse through forums and podcasts: everybody is talking about the brain – how it works, how it develops, how we use it and how we can use it better. With our hackathons we invite anyone – from the most experienced bio-hacker to the curious neuroscientist and the hardcore programmer to the eccentric artist – to tackle their own brainy ideas.

Hack the Brain 2016 took place from 24-26 June at the Waag in Amsterdam.

Partners in Hack the Brain are Total Active Media, Donders Institute and University Twente. Waag Society will organize Hack de Brain 2016 within the framework of the EU programme ‘BrainHack – Bringing the arts and sciences of brain and neural computer interface together’, part of Horizon 2020.
