Massive-scale neuroscience

MateMarote: Many 1-to-1 educational models are spreading all over the world: the One Laptop Per Child program (OLPC), directed by Nicholas Negroponte and Conectar Igualdad program from Argentina are two of the biggest ones deployed. This initiatives open up a new era with massive-scale educational resources. The fact that all learning and teaching tasks are represented in the same digital environment is a formidable tool for educational applications, as well as for research and experimentation. The main objective of this project is the development and use of techniques of machine learning to study massive-scale corpus associated to cognitive processes, taken from the mobile computers of an entire country, which may help identify the mental operations which are chained in the design of programs or routines. The goal is twofold: first, decoding of regularities in the corpus to infer the generative rules of human thought, and their incorporation into artificial intelligence models. Conversely, it is expected to promote the use of synergistic human-scale computing to solve intractable computational architectures in-silico.
