BrainIAK at SfN 2017

BrainIAK is a Python package for high-performance neuroimaging analysis. Below are the six posters associated with the BrainIAK project that will appear at SfN 2017 along with several code examples. The easiest way to get started with the examples is via a Docker container:
  1. Install Docker (Windows, macOS, or Ubuntu).
  2. Run the following commands in your terminal (or follow the documentation):
    • docker pull brainiak/brainiak
    • docker run -it -p 8888:8888 -v brainiak:/mnt --name demo brainiak/brainiak
    • python3 -m notebook --allow-root --no-browser --ip=
  3. Visit http://localhost:8888 in your browser.
For the full BrainIAK feature set, including scalability, please
  1. Install the appropriate requirements
  2. Install BrainIAK via pip install brainiak
