The Brain as a Computer Interface

Room 101

Matt Angle
Paradromics, CEO

Matt Angle is the founder and CEO of Paradromics. He has a technical background in the design of neural recording systems, and he is an active advocate for neurotechnology as medicine. Matt completed his Ph.D. in Neuroscience at the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research at the University of Heidelberg. Prior to founding Paradromics in 2015, Matt conducted postdoctoral research in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Stanford University focused on next-gen electronics for neural recordings. He lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife and three children. 

The brain is a data organ. Everything we touch and everything we experience comes as information to the brain. Similarly, everything we do comes as signals from the brain. The input and output of the brain is information. So could computer chips that connect directly to the brain give sight to people who are blind — or even eliminate mental illness?

Matt Angle and his Paradromics Inc. team are making the brain accessible to direct communication with computers, advanced sensors, or any digital device. As keynote speaker for our Medical Devices track, Matt will discuss their work and offer insights on the role human augmentation and robotics will play in the future of health — a global market that is expected to reach $665B by 2028.
