9:35am to 10:05am
Randal Koene is a Dutch neuroscientist and neuroengineer and co-founder of carboncopies.org, the organisation for advancing Substrate-Independent Minds (SIM).
He is a former Professor at the Center for Memory and Brain of Boston University and co-founder of the Neural Engineering Corporation of Massachusetts. He was Director of Analysis at the Silicon Valley nanotechnology company Halcyon Molecular and Director of the Department of Neuroengineering at Tecnalia, the third largest private research organisation in Europe.
Koene established the MindUploading.org website and first proposed the term and specific approach called whole brain emulation, the purpose of which is the technological accomplishment of mind transfer to a different substrate. His lab is creating a Virtual Brain Laboratory to give neuroscientists, neuroengineers and clinicians large-scale high-resolution quantitative tools analogous to the computational tools essential in fields such as genetics, chemistry or the aerospace industry.
