Understanding how our brain works is one of the biggest challenges facing humanity. To make a quantum leap towards greater understanding, we need to increase the cadre of neuron modeling experts worldwide and significantly improve automated neuron analysis. Mozak’s international online community of over 400 emerging experts has sped up neuron reconstruction by a factor of 3.6 over previous state-of-the-art procedures through a symbiosis of human insight and enhanced computational tools. This talk will describe how we managed to do this in just one year, and how we plan to accelerate neuroscience 10 times over the next 3 years.
