Most cyber security discussions centre on financial data or national security – but what if you need to secure the secrets of the human brain?
Omniscient are “the OpenAI of the Human Brain” – the world leader in using artificial intelligence to decode the brain.
Omniscient develops technology via the study of connectomics – data-driven construction and analysis of the brain’s connections. Data are converted from MRI scans into 3D visuals of electrical activity occurring in the brain. The company’s latest technology, called Quicktome, is used by neurosurgeons as a surgical planning tool offering views of brain activity for each patient.
Security of individual patient records is of obvious concern, however Omniscient’s dataset can also reveal connections leading to mental health issues such as depression or even precursors to dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease. Cyber security surrounding IP protection is vital for Omniscient, and many other businesses in globally significant technology.
