This intensive 2-day workshop will offer a unique opportunity to learn about the fundamentals of interactive web applications and about the essential concepts and skills required to develop online behavioral experiments or clinical instruments using various approaches:
Game engines such as Godot to extend the space of possibilities and maximize engagement.
Crossplatform development to translate rapidly web apps into Android/iOS apps.
AI tools to integrate remote cognitive testing with emerging technologies such as large language models (GPT-3) or computer vision (Tensorflow.js).
The program includes talks and practical sessions during which the participants will get familiar with various concepts and state-of-the-art techniques of the field. Participants will have the opportunity to draft original projects by themselves or in small groups.
The ambition of the workshop is to provide participants with solid application backbones and templates to pursue their project and to experiment by themselves.. or with us!
