Play episode · 50 min

Can we one day hack the human brain? That day might be sooner than you think... This week, James is joined by Emil Hewage, Co-Founder and CEO at BIOS. Emil undertook PhD research in computational neuroscience and machine learning at the University of Cambridge and has used this knowledge to pioneer the use of artificial intelligence for interpreting neural data. He began working in startups at age 17 and held engineering and leadership roles across a range of industries from clean energy to advanced medical technologies. He was recently named to Forbes 30 Under 30. BIOS is a leading neural engineering startup, creating the open standard hardware and software interface between the human nervous system and AI. Their team uses applied materials, machine learning, software engineering, neuroscience, and the experience of surgeons and clinicians to solve the complex problems of successfully integrating AI-based treatments into the human body. BIOS has the largest PNS neural data set in the world, performing cutting-edge machine learning research to apply this technology to chronic conditions throughout the body, enabling a new ecosystem in healthcare from delivery to recurrent care. The company was formerly known as Cambridge Bio-Augmentation Systems (CBAS) and they've recently raised $4.5 million in seed funding. https://www.bios.health/
