You know the awful feeling when you’re running out of storage in your cell phone. Well, in the last two decades alone, we amassed more than 59 zettabytes of data. That’s, let me say this correctly, that’s 125 million years of F.R.I.E.N.D.S., which is also my favourite TV show. The problem at hand is how to properly and ethically use this data to stay ahead of the competition. So we will try to answer this question today with help of our guest Bojan Ciric.

Nemanja: This is Chair, a place where we discuss innovations.

Ivan is currently CEO and co-founder of mBrainTrain, a tech startup focused on high-quality variable EEG systems. After finishing his PhD studies in biomedical engineering, he embarked on the journey to decipher the human brain.

INTRO:

This is Chair, a place where we discuss innovations.

Oftentimes inventors dream about creating the next big thing, the next Facebook, Amazon, or Google. But they are just fixing problems that already have proven solutions. In other words, they are reinventing the wheel. While they might have grand ideas with even greater potential, they often go in a totally wrong direction. That is a direct consequence of following their solitary vision for the product, instead of listening to the needs of the final users.

Today our guest is Pavle Krivokuća, Senior Business Developer, Managing Partner & CRO at Impact Hub…

INTRO:

Neuroscience, with its big data and big brain energy, is an intriguing topic in itself. It is such a vast branch of science that has provided us with a huge pool of in-depth information about how the human brain functions. Whether you’d like to approach this immense subject from the viewpoint of innovation or a more scientific standpoint of hard data, it’s still a massive study that invites a passionate ChairTalks dialogue.

Decades of researching, exploring the deepest and highest regions of our planet, even visiting outer space and landing on the Moon, and we still can’t figure out what’s…
