[Discussion] Comparing UK ML-Neuro Labs: Deepmind, Google Brain, Microsoft Cambridge, etc.
I’m a masters student in the UK hoping to get 1-2 years of research experience at the intersection of machine learning and neuroscience (so not so much image recognition, speech recognition, etc.)
The two academic options that immediately came to mind were the Gatsby Comp. Neuroscience at UCL and Cambridge’s Computational Biological Learning group. I’m not familiar with industry labs and would like your help in comparing Deepmind, Google Brain (UK site), Microsoft Research Cambridge, etc. Which one of these offers the most relevant research in terms of machine learning applied to neuroscience as I am hoping to enter academia for computational neuroscience? A lab that publishes well is also a nice plus as always. Thanks.
