A startup associated with CIMCYC wins an international award in Artificial Intelligence
The startup Neuromindset (www.neuromindset.com), a spin-off of the UGR founded by Lina Cómbita and Joan Paul Pozuelos, has beaten more than 1,000 startups from around the world in the category Artificial Intelligence to promote self-regulated learning, one of the 5 specialized tracks of the international GESAwards (www.globaledtechawards.org), which select the most innovative initiatives in the field of education.
Neuromindset was born 4 years ago within the Laboratory of Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience of CIMCYC (https://wpd.ugr.es/~labncd/), under the direction of Charo Rueda.
The Neuromindset project emerged as an initiative to train teachers from all over the world in the application of neuroscience for cognitive training and improvement of learning abilities, concentration and skill development in children and adolescents. Their contributions have led them to participate in research projects in Spain, LATAM and the United States, in addition to training teachers around the world in neuroscience applied to education.
For Charo Rueda, Professor at CIMCYC and member of the founding team of Neurominset, "this award rewards the work of two great researchers like Lina and Paul, and in turn, the collaboration with the research team of our Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience of Development at CIMCYC. A sign of the strength of the UGR in this field, where we will surely have more innovative projects and proposals for the transfer of neuroscience to society."
