SMC Founders Keynote "From Research to Scientific Breakthroughs to Improving Lives of People"
Our CEO, Tim Mullen recently gave an invited Keynote talk discussing our mission to power the future of "anytime, anywhere" neurotechnology, at the Founders Keynote Session of the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics conference in Budapest, Hungary.
The special session titled "From Research to Scientific Breakthroughs to Improving Lives of People" brought together technology innovators to address the following topics:
"How do scientific breakthrough technologies go from a simple idea, to a few research prototypes costing millions, to products produced in the millions costing consumers/users only hundreds? Can we replace confining multi-ton, multi-million dollar fMRI machines with helmets weighing less than the brains they are imaging? Can we stream brain activity from billions of people and feed it in meaningful and selectively tailored ways to others, enabling global collaboration in an augmented environment? What does it take to create, invent, and develop revolutionary new technologies that most cannot even envision? [...] In this session, founders from companies collectively worth over $5 billon will share tales of pathways from research ideas to scientific breakthroughs to consumer/user products - how they went from identifying and finding solutions to scientific problems, ascertaining/recognizing/discovering customers, and building their enterprise."
