Osh Agabi is the Founder & CEO of Koniku Inc. He has over 15+ years of experience in neuroelectronic interfacing in Industry and Academia. As a strategic projects lead at a robotics startup in Switzerland he implemented learning algorithms for pick-and-place robots which worked alongside humans in a factory setting. They achieved success in developing robots that learn object categorization autonomously.
He also led a cross disciplinary industry team to develop an in vitro reflex arc for modeling implantable neural chips. These chips interfaced with the peripheral nervous system (PNS). As a visiting scholar and during his PhD studies at the Imperial College in London, he built and customized 2 photon microscopes for studying synaptic transmission in the mouse visual cortex and Alzheimer’s disease models.
