Modulating and decoding visual information: from cannabinoids to artificial neural networks

Speaker: Dr William Redmond, Macquarie University

William John Redmond did his PhD in the field of Pharmacology at Macquarie University working on cannabinoids and related receptors signalling mechanisms. He then moved back home to Montréal to work on the effects of cannabinoids on the visual system in vivo. William found the visual world fascinating and gave up the field of pharmacology (for a while) to delve into the processes associated with object recognition at KU Leuven, in Belgium. His work in Leuven started a deep interest in machine-learning approaches, which is now at the centre of his research. William recently came back to Macquarie University as a senior postdoc where he is investigating the circuits linking the multi-sensory world we inhabit and the autonomic responses they produce. In his spare time, William collaborates with colleagues where he applies ML approaches to various biomedical disciplines, including neural implants, cancer proteomics and microscopy-based image segmentation and classification.

All welcome. Drinks and nibbles from 3:30pm, seminar starts, 4pm.
