November 15–16th in Palo Alto, CA: Transformative Technology Conference & Expo 2019

_____

When: Novem­ber 15–16th, 2019

Where: Elks Palo Alto, Palo Alto, CA 94306

What: The Trans­for­ma­tive Tech­nol­o­gy Con­fer­ence is an inspir­ing con­fer­ence focused on tech for men­tal health, emo­tion­al well­be­ing, and human flour­ish­ing, at the inter­sec­tion of neu­ro­science, psy­chol­o­gy, tech, entre­pre­neur­ship, and inno­va­tion. It fea­tures expo­nen­tial tech­nolo­gies like AI, AR/VR/XR, net­works and sen­sors, biotech, neu­ro­feed­back, robot­ics and more to build tech to enable human well­be­ing at scale.

CDT-Neu­ro stu­dent leads team to win £10K Robot­ics & Inno­va­tion prize (Impe­r­i­al Col­lege Lon­don):

Irene Mendez Guer­ra (CDT Neu­rotech­nol­o­gy), Ben Lakey (Mitt and Impe­r­i­al alum­ni), Ivan Vujak­li­ja (Prof. Aal­to Uni­ver­si­ty and for­mer Impe­r­i­al asso­ciate) and Dario Fari­na (Chair Neu­rore­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Engi­neer­ing, Impe­r­i­al) have cre­at­ed Nav­i­ga, which is devel­op­ing intu­itive, user friend­ly con­trols for pros­the­ses … Naviga’s con­trol sys­tem elim­i­nates the long train­ing ses­sions and improves the cur­rent con­trol approach­es to increase the accep­tance, usage, and func­tion­al­i­ty of cur­rent pros­the­ses.”

– Illus­tra­tive image from U.S. Patent No. 7,087,008

Today we are shar­ing a key 2006 patent assigned to The Regents of The Uni­ver­si­ty of Texas, the NIH, and the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Ser­vices. (As men­tioned, we are fea­tur­ing a foun­da­tion­al Per­va­sive Neu­rotech patent a day, from old­er to new­er by issue date)

U.S. Patent No. 7,087,008: Appa­ra­tus and meth­ods for deliv­ery of tran­scra­nial mag­net­ic stim­u­la­tion.

  • Assignee(s): The Regents of The Uni­ver­si­ty of Texas; The NIH, U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Ser­vices Gov­ern­ment
  • Inventor(s): Peter Fox, Jack Lan­cast­er
  • Tech­nol­o­gy Cat­e­go­ry: Tran­scra­nial Stim­u­la­tion
  • Issue Date: August 8, 2006

SharpBrains’ Take:

With a fair­ly exten­sive spec­i­fi­ca­tion (span­ning 19 illus­tra­tion sheets and 18 pages of writ­ten mate­r­i­al), the ‘008 dis­clos­es teach­ings that lever­age the pre­ci­sion of robot­ic move­ment capa­bil­i­ties to enhance tar­get­ed tran­scra­nial stim­u­la­tion. Four inde­pen­dent claims pro­vide broad and inter­weav­ing claim cov­er­age over the robotic/transcranial stim­u­la­tion sys­tem and meth­ods. Read the rest of this entry »
