Dr. Randal Koene, Dutch Neuroscientist, Neuroengineer, Preeminent Theorist, Founder And Developer Will Discuss The State Of Science And Technology For Neural Prostheses And Whole Brain Emulation

Substrate Independent Minds (SIM) is a field of research which seeks to understand the brain and nervous system of a wide range of organisms, including humans, in order to facilitate emulation of these organisms in an artificial substrate.

As founder for the nonprofit carboncopies.org and the startup NeuraLink Co, Dr. Koene will address how to tackle and accomplish a complex long-term project to achieve human whole brain emulation.

"You can plot all the Kurzweilian exponential curves you want, enormously complicated advances don't make themselves happen. "Mind uploading" is an amazing idea utterly dependent on good planning and good execution with dedication and endurance!" states Dr. Koene.

Dr. Koene joins host Cindy F. Solomon live at Studio132 for the Global Product Management Talk on Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at the simultaneous times of 10:00 AM Pacific Time, 11:00 AM MST Denver, 12:00 Noon CST Chicago, and 1:00 PM EST Boston.

Participants are welcome to listen live at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/prodmgmttalk and/or call in to talk on the show (323) 927-2957 and participate on Twitter by following @ProdMgmtTalk and using the hashtag #ProdMgmttalk (Best live listening quality is to call in to listen on the line during the show.)

    • Global Product Management Talk On Whole Brain Emulation Dr. Randal Koene, Dutch Neuroscientist, Neuroengineer, Preeminent Theorist, Founder And Developer Will Discuss The State Of Science And Technology For Neural Prostheses And Whole Brain Emulation FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE PRLog (Press Release) - Apr. 7, 2014 - OAKLAND, Calif. -- Substrate Independent Minds (SIM) is a field of research which seeks to understand the brain and nervous system of a wide range of organisms, including humans, in order to facilitate emulation of these organisms in an artificial substrate. Dr. Koene explains, "When you think about Substrate Independent Minds, a good analogy is to think about platform independent code when you think in terms of software. Platform independent code is when you have a program that can easily run on any computer and will produce the same result whether it runs on a Mac, a PC or a supercomputer. For
    • Substrate Independent Minds, we are saying that what's happening inside of our brains - that there are functions that are running on a certain kind of hardware - they're running on these mechanisms, on the processes, that are going on in the brain. In principle, if you can take these same functions and run them on some other substrate, some other hardware, and they produce the same result, then you get the same outcome." As founder for the nonprofit carboncopies.org and the startup NeuraLink Co, Dr. Koene will address how to tackle and accomplish a complex long-term project to achieve human whole brain emulation. "You can plot all the Kurzweilian exponential curves you want, enormously complicated advances don't make themselves happen. "Mind uploading" is an amazing idea utterly dependent on good planning and good execution with dedication and endurance!" states Dr. Koene. Dr. Koene joins host Cindy F.
