Mr. Levay suffered a devastating meningitis infection as a young adult which led to amputations on both his legs and arms. Upon realizing the limitations of prosthetic devices when first receiving one he turned his focus to the control strategies of these devices. Through a Fulbright scholarship he completed his master’s degree at the Johns Hopkins University, where his research centered around machine learning-based controls for upper limb prostheses. During his talk he will show the capabilities of such systems through his own prosthetic arm, while highlighting its limitations and exploring the next steps for such human-machine interfaces.
Supreet Manchanda, Managing General Partner at Raiven Capital takes us through a journey of the emerging digital economy focusing on how we got to where we are today and why its relevance in the coming years matters. Nations that prepare and develop ways to engage and invest in the digital economy will become winners. Supreet will share the risks and rewards of being early in this game through a review of how countries have won and lost the innovation game from the industrial age to the information age. Revolutionary technologies such as 5G, AI and Blockchain have created their own trends - some is hype and some is real. Supreet shares his perspective as a Silicon Valley venture capitalist on what Raiven Capital is investing in. Using real examples of companies, he will discuss the upcoming milestones where key stakeholders (eg. VC, Startups, Policy makers, Governments and established institutions) need to play a role in shaping the future prosperity of regions and nations.
