Vladimir Konyshev

President and CEO, Neurobotics

Vladimir Konyshev, General Manager and CEO of Neurobotics (Zelenograd, Moscow), graduated from the 2nd Moscow medical Institute in 1987 as MD with emphasis on Biophysics. He worked at the Institute of Higher Nervous Activity and Neurophysiology of RAS from 1985 to 2007, implemented projects on EEG and MEG. From 1992 to 2003 he worked as a chief programmer in the companies Brain Function Laboratory (Japan) and Neuroscan (USA), participated in the development of commercial EEG systems. In 2004 he founded the Neurobotics company, which specializes in the development of systems for research in the field of neuroscience and psychophysiology, behavioral analysis of humans and animals. Since 2011, the company has been developing anthropomorphic and medical robotics and AI. Since that several anthropomorphic robots like Alice Zelenogradova, Alexander Pushkin, Alan Turing were created. Starting 2017 Vladimir Konyshev heads the NeuroRobotic laboratory of the MIPT. He has scientific publications on EEG and brain-computer interface field. Since December 2016, Neurobotics in cooperation with MIPT, Scientific Center of Neurology, HSE and others organizations is working on the project "Assistive technologies with neurocontrol" of the Neuronet under National Technological Initiative. This project aims to create robotic systems for neurorehabilitation after a stroke, assistive complex on the base of the manipulator controlled by the hybrid neurointerface to help immobilized patients by using, devices to help deaf-blind people. Under this project Neuroplay neurointerface was developed in 2018. It utilizes the dry active electrode technologies and is used to control various devices and play neurogames. In 2019-2022 all medical devices developed within the project will be realized to the global market.
