Speaking Engagements


Dr. Randal Koene has dedicated his career to neural interfaces, neural prosthesis, and the functional reconstruction of neural tissue since at least 1994. Koene introduced the multi-disciplinary field of whole brain emulation and is lead architect of the scientific roadmap with which its technological development is promoted. He is a principal member of the University of Oxford working group that convened in 2007, which produced the first roadmap toward whole brain emulation (a term Koene proposed in 2000). In the decade since then Koene has striven to advocate for the importance of the technology and of the science, and has identified accelerators for the development of neural interfaces, neural prostheses, and brain emulation. Dr. Koene's professional expertise includes computational neuroscience, neural engineering, psychology, information theory, electrical engineering, physics, venture capital due diligence, and enterprise in early-stage technology startups.
