[Video Uploaded] Report of Event: "Reconstruction of the Humanities Based on Neuroscientific Understandings of Affect" by NIPS Research Group

On November 5th to 6th, 2021, the NIPS Research Group held a symposium on the "Reconstruction of the Humanities Based on Neuroscientific Understandings of Affect" both at the NIPS venue and via Zoom.

Due to recent advancements of fMRI and statistical models, it is now possible to estimate the potential affective states of an individual by observing their brain activity. In this workshop, participants discussed at length how academic disciplines in the humanities and social sciences can further progress by actively utilizing such technologies in the future.

We would like to thank everyone who participated. A video recording of the event is available below for anyone who was unable to attend.
