  • Computational Tutorials

Taught by: Emily Mackevicius and Greg Ciccarelli

Introduction to dimensionality reduction and the methods of Principal Components Analysis and Singular Value Decomposition. Dimensionality Reduction I tutorial from the tutorial series in computational topics for brain and cognitive sciences. Lecture slides, references, exercises, and sign-ups for future tutorials are posted here: https://stellar.mit.edu/S/project/bcs-comp-tut/
Each tutorial consists of a lecture, and then 'office hours' time to work through exercises and discuss current research problems. Tutorials are geared toward grad students and postdocs with some computational interest/background, but who aren't experts in these topics.
Thanks to MIT BCS seminar committee, postdoc committee (especially Evan Remington), and graduate advocate committee for funding and organizing help.

Tutorial series founded by Emily Mackevicius.
