Jak previously completed a degree in Psychology at the University of East Anglia and is now studying for a Masters in Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London (UCL).
While completing his undergraduate degree, he developed a passion for reading about the ethical issues and implementation challenges of big data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.
After arriving at UCL, he began working in the Max Planck Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing research, where he is investigating how mood influences the choices we make, and whether neuroeconomic computational models can explain why shifts in our mood bias our perception of rewards
Talks I've Given
Lightning Talk: Big Data and Cognitive Neuroscience: Challenges, Resolutions, and Alternatives
Featuring Jak Maloret
Cognitive Neuroscience studies the mental processes underlying cognition and behaviour. By interlinking behavioural studies from Psychology with state-of-the-art Neuroimaging methods, we are able to gain insight into how processes such as decision-making and learning evolve.research human-behaviour psychiatry infiniteconf big-data
