simulation-based inference for neuroscience [One World ABC seminar]

The next One World ABC seminar will take place on Thursday at 11:30, UK time, and will broadcast a talk by Jakob Macke on Simulation-based inference for neuroscience. Here is the abstract

Neuroscience research makes extensive use of mechanistic models of neural dynamics — these models are often implemented through numerical simulators, requiring the use of simulation-based approaches to statistical inference. I will talk about our recent work on developing simulation based inference-methods using flexible density estimators parameterised with neural networks, our efforts on benchmarking these approaches, and applications to modelling problems in neuroscience.
