As part of its role as an Industry Advisory Board (IAB) member, Cactus Semiconductor participated in the annual meetings at the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE). The meetings, held at the University of Washington (UW), included presentations by all IAB members, presentations covering of all the current CSNE research activities, IAB board meetings, and an advisory meeting with the National Science Foundation (NSF) site visit team. There were also several student-focused events including poster & demo sessions, a free-form question & answer session, and a meet & greet dinner.
According to Scott Ransom PhD, Industry Liaison Officer for the CSNE, “Having Cactus’ participation in our Industry Day and NSF Site visit was invaluable. Andy Kelly provided important insights and strategic input that will help guide the direction of CSNE over the next year as we continue to pursue the development of BBCI and design single-chip solutions to implement it.”
Overall, the 3-day session was a great success, and Cactus is looking forward to continued support of the important and exciting work being done at the CSNE.
