Osh. Agabi has more than 15 years’ experience working on neuroelectronic interfaces in industry and academia. He led cross-disciplinary industry/academia team to develop an in vitro reflex arc for modeling implantable neural chips. As a visiting scholar at MRC (London Institute of Medical Sciences, Hammersmith) and during his Ph.D. studies at the Imperial College in London, he built and customized two-photon microscopes for studying synaptic transmission in the mouse visual cortex.
He leads Koniku Inc. which merges synthetic neurobiology, neuroscience, and silicon technology into a sturdy, compact device that solves important real-world problems. Koniku’s current device uses real biological neurons embedded in silicon to detect volatile organic compounds (VOC's) associated with explosives. It can also monitor health status (e.g. food metabolism), perform disease diagnostics and create signatures for food and smells through activations on our chip.
Koniku has been vetted to work with large organizations to improve security at crucial sites such as airports. They are currently gearing up for large-scale manufacture. Long term, they are extending the platform to create a neural organoid substrate (synthetic brains) that integrates sensory information to make autonomous decisions: synthetic cognition.
