Practical Introduction to machine learning for neuroimaging: classifiers, dimensionality reduction, cross-validation and neuropredict. How to apply machine learning to your data, even if you do not know how to program. Learn what is machine learning and get a high-level overview of few popular types of classification and dimensionality reduction methods. Learn (without any math) how support vector machines work. Learn how to plan a predictive analysis study on your own data? What are the key steps of the workflow? What are the best practices, and which cross-validation scheme to choose? How to evaluate and report classification accuracy? Learn which toolboxes to use when, with a practical categorization of few toolboxes. This is followed by detailed demo of neuropredict, for automatic estimation of predictive power of different features or classifiers without needing to code at all.
