Breakthroughs in Computing
Milan is a scientist and software engineer. Prior to Convergent Research, he was a machine learning researcher at the medicinal chemistry startup PostEra and at Amazon Web Services, a software engineer at the Ugandan microsolar company Fenix International, and a Fulbright Scholar researching quantum chemistry. He received his PhD in Computing and Mathematical Sciences from Caltech.
Adam is the CEO of Convergent Research. He is working with a large and growing network of collaborators and advisors to develop a strategic roadmap for future FROs. Outside of CR, he is a consultant for the Astera Institute, where he helps steer programs on the biology of aging such as The Rejuvenome, and he serves on the boards of several non-profits pursuing new methods of funding and organizing scientific research including Norn Group and New Science, and as an interviewer for the Hertz Foundation.
Convergent Research on Brain-Computer Interfaces
This is a virtual event, with an in-person broadcast in Lisbon. We invite LabWeek22 participants and others in Lisbon to join us at SUD Lisboa for drinks, light bites, and discussion.
Join us for a live virtual talk and conversation with researchers at Convergent Research on the future of brain-computer interfaces. How are these direct communication pathways between humans and machines progressing? How we will continue augmenting our minds and bodies? And what lines, if any, will be drawn by humanity in this quest?
Hear a talk from Milan Cvitkovic, a scientist, software engineer, and the strategy lead at Convergent Research. Then listen to a fascinating fireside chat between Convergent Research CEO Adam Marblestone and Protocol Labs founder Juan Benet. Finally, you'll have a chance to ask these pioneers and innovators questions yourself.
This event is part of the Breakthroughs in Computing Speaker Series, on how technology will shape society in the next five to 25 years. Hosted by Protocol Labs, this series runs every evening from Oct. 24-28. It's designed to bring people together through convivial drinks, thoughtful discussions, and new connections.
We invite all LabWeek22 participants to join the Breakthroughs in Computing Speaker Series. We also welcome any others who are engaging in advanced computing initiatives. This could be open source projects, research, higher education, or similar endeavors.
