Anirban Bandyopadhyay, NIMS, Japan, IIIR, India

National Institute for Materials Science, Tsukuba, Japan; Visiting Professor, MIT

Anirban Bandyopadhyay is a Senior Scientist in the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), Tsukuba, Japan. PhD from Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science (IACS), Kolkata 2005, on supramolecular electronics. During 2005-2008 selected as Independent Researcher, ICYS Research Fellow in the International Center for Young Scientists (ICYS), NIMS, Japan, worked on brain-like bio-processor building. In 2007, started as permanent Scientist in NIMS, working on cavity resonator model of human brain & brainlike organic jelly. During 2013-2014 a visiting professor in MIT, USA. Hitachi Science and Technology award 2010, Inamori Foundation award 2011-2012, Kurata Foundation Award, etc, few of 40 Keynote/Plenary lectures available in YouTube.   Cavity resonator based complete human brain model, argues to replace Turing tape with a fractome tape, and built a new geometric-musical language is made to operate that tape. Built number system metric as foundation to time metric to replace space-time metric. Designed & built multiple machines & technologues: (1) angstrom probe for neuron signals (2) dielectric imaging of neuron firing, (3) Single protein and its complex structure’s resonant imaging (4) Fourth circuit element study infrastructure. A new frequency fractal model is built to represent biological machines. His group has designed and synthesized several forms of organic brain jelly (programmable matter) that learns, programs and solves problems by itself for futuristic robots during 2000-2014, also several software simulators that writes complex codes by itself.

 

Jack A. Tuszynski, Ph.D. serves as a Member of Scientific Advisory Board of OncoVista Innovative Therapies, Inc. (also known as Oncovista, Inc.). Dr. Tuszynski was an Assistant Professor at the Department of Physics of the Memorial University of Newfoundland from 1983 to 1988, and at the University of Alberta Physics Department from 1988 to 1990. He joined the University of Alberta Physics Department in 1993. He is on the editorial board of the Journal of Biological Physics. Prof. Tuszynski received his M.Sc. with distinction in Physics from the University of Poznan (Poland) in 1980. He received his Ph.D. in Condensed Matter Physics from the University of Calgary in 1983. He holds a Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the University of Calgary Chemistry Department in 1983.

Stuart Hameroff MD is Professor of Anesthesiology and Psychology, and Director of the Center for Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona in Tucson. Hameroff became interested in intelligent behavior of microtubules, protein lattices which organize activities within living cells. Hameroff and colleagues developed theories of microtubules as self-organizing molecular computers. In the 1990s Hameroff teamed with Sir Roger Penrose on the controversial Penrose-Hameroff "Orch OR" model of consciousness based on quantum computing in brain neuronal microtubules, a notion bolstered by recent evidence. In Orch OR, Penrose physics connects brain microtubules to the most basic level of the universe - fundamental spacetime geometry at the Planck scale. At that level, Penrose had also proposed Platonic information could guide, or influence conscious choices and perceptions. Viewing consciousness as such a process in the fabric of the universe, Hameroff suggests, provides plausible scientific explanations for spirituality - inter-connectedness through entanglement, accessible Planck scale wisdom, and potential afterlife and reincarnation. A full-time clinical anesthesiologist, Hameroff also organizes the biennial interdisciplinary conferences The Science of Consciousness Conference Series, aka "Toward a Science of Consciousness".
