We will start with a quick introduction to the NPO, NeurAlbertaTech, with a recap of projects we have supported since our founding in February of 2019.

Then we will dive deep into the specifics of one of our current projects, "Koalacademy" (submission to the Russian Neurotech Cup 2021), and how we are scientifically validating a Brain Computer Interface-accelerated language learning platform through traditional academic research avenues at the University of Alberta.

When: Friday October 21st, 2021, 16:00-16:30 MT

Where: Virtual!

NATChat: Women in Neurotech

RSVPs for natChat Fa21 are now open!

A FREE virtual chat session hosted by NeurAlbertaTech. We invite guest speakers to talk about important topics in neuroscience, tech, and the neurotech industry. At this event you will have the chance to win some exclusive NAT swag and more importantly, you will have the chance to build your network and expand your professional reach.

Workshop Series

If you want to learn about the stuff we do in a fun, interactive, low-stress environment, this is the event for you! We currently offer four unique 10-session workshop streams (Hardware, Software, Machine Learning, and Neuroscience) that serve as an introduction to each of the key pilars of brain computer interfacing programs.

natHACKS

Alberta’s inaugural brain-computer interface hackathon. This is a completely remote hackathon with thousands of dollars in prizes available! natHACKS will be an event like no other, inspiring beginners to develop practical neurotech skills and challenging competent hackers to apply themselves in this growing and exciting field. Spanning two weeks and culminating in a 64-hour hackathon weekend, the event will combine workshops, challenges, and networking opportunities for anyone interested in neurotechnology. With three different streams and separate judging criteria based on experience level, we’re thrilled to allow neurotech enthusiasts to get their hands dirty in a diverse selection of projects.
