Research project neuroscience and AI

We are a consumer neuroscience company: through innovative scientific research, we advise organizations on marketing challenges. We analyze Ad’s, TV shows and brands. Alpha.One collects brain data and translates these into actionable advice.

The project consists of devising a suitable task for measuring emotive brain responses, performing EEG measurements and comparing (existing) standard DSP approaches to predictive models created with deep learning (CNNs). In particular we would like to show the efficacy of classifying basic emotions (anger, disgust, fear, happiness, sadness and surprise) using deep CNNs, induced by watching short clips of video. Due to the limited availability of data, this is a very challenging task which will involve the application of transfer learning techniques to pre-trained models in the case of predictive deep learning models, with which Alpha.One has experience. The student will ideally produce a thesis which, if of sufficient quality, can be turned into an article that can be published in a relevant scientific journal. The thesis clearly explains the methods used, comparative experimentation and a discussion of the found results. Next to the thesis the student will produce a data processing pipeline using relevant technologies from neuroscience and AI. The estimated duration of the project is 6 months.
