BCI's On The Grill šŸ„© - Candid Questions in Bioelectronic Medicines (Part 2ā€Ŗ)ā€¬ SKRAPS of Science & Innovation

    • Life Sciences

WhatĀ IsĀ a BCI? And just as importantly, whatĀ isnā€™tĀ a BCI?
This is an unusual episode and an incredibly fun one. Arun and JoJo enlisted some of the fieldā€™s top folks to talk through whatā€™s in and whatā€™s out in this exciting field.Ā Amy KruseĀ is a general partner at Prime Movers Lab and a self-professed Founder turned Funder (and a neuroscientist by training),Ā Matt AngleĀ is the founder and CEO of Paradromics - developing high data rate BCIs, andĀ Marcus GerhardtĀ is the co-founder and CEO of Blackrock Neurotech and is hoping that their BCIs will disrupt the standard for patient care for the 600 million people that suffer from neurological disorders.Ā 
This episode has it all - technical glitches, laughter, ruffled feathers (Arunā€™s specialty), and some tantalizing discussions around definitions, dystopia, and delivering on the promise of this incredible technology.Ā 
Arun picks at and Matt defends the valuations of BCI companies - replete with funny characters and great voice acting. Amy chimes in with her point of view (plot twist: sheā€™s on the side of massive market potential) while Marcus makes the claim that BCI companies are, in fact,Ā underĀ valued.
In short, this episode is pretty much your best chance at eavesdropping on a tantalizing conversation among some truly brilliant people on a fascinating topic.Ā 
SKRAPS is your podcast, where we on your behalf explores unsaid, under-appreciated and sometimes, untold stories of sparks of brilliance in science, technology and innovation.
