Artificial intelligence has become ubiquitous in the news and across the devices and software we use every day. This presentation will provide an introduction to machine learning algorithms and their applications relevant to the brain research and mental health community. A brief history of the evolution of machine learning reveals their inspiration from and relationship to the processing that takes place in both individual and ensembles of neurons; further inspiration includes the emergence of neuromorphic hardware that emulates the recurrent, asynchronous, spatiotemporal nature of cortical processing. Four applications will be highlighted: 1) EEG and MRI-based biomarker discovery for mental health disorders; 2) the application of Chat-GPT technologies on MRI and MEG data to decode word sequences and hand gestures; 3) transfer learning on light sheet microscopy data to map the connectome; and, 4) and commercially available applications for mental health support using empathy-enhanced language models. The discussion closes by sharing limitations of these approaches and suggestions for critically evaluating the literature.
