In the midst of a global COVID-19 pandemic, visionary entrepreneur Bryan Johnson quietly launched a new neurotechnology paradigm that may shift how neuroscience researchers conduct brain studies in the future.
Johnson is the pioneering Founder and CEO of Kernel, a brain-computer interface (BCI) company headquartered in Culver City, which is part of Los Angeles, California. On Tuesday, Kernel emerged from stealth mode and unveiled its Neuroscience as a Service (NaaS) platform to provide on-demand non-invasive brain recording capabilities for scientific research organizations.
Johnson is also the Co-Founder and General Partner of OS Fund, a venture capital company founded in 2014 that is focused on investing in artificial intelligence machine learning companies for genomics, therapeutics, diagnostics, advanced materials, and synthetic biology. A polymath and adventurer, Johnson is a pilot, author of two books for children (Code 7: Cracking the Code for an Epic Life and The Pronto Project), and outdoor enthusiast who has summited Mount Kilimanjaro.
