Dr. Newton Howard is the founder of ni2o, Inc., a biotechnology company developing a novel, artificial-intelligence driven brain-computer interface to treat a wide range of debilitating neurological disorders and to improve cognitive and athletic performance. His career spans academia, the U.S. military and the private sector. A prolific scientific author and inventor, he is highly skilled in moving research from the lab to military and commercial applications, including technology you may use daily such as wireless hot spots, Google Earth and Google Translate. Dr. Howard holds advanced degrees in Mathematics (Oxford), Cognitive Informatics (Sorbonne), Neurosurgery (Oxford), and psychiatry (Sorbonne). He has made significant contributions to the fields of neuroscience, linguistics and national defense, including the Physics of Cognition (a mathematical framework for modeling complex medical, economic and security equilibriums), Intention Awareness (a theory for predictive modeling of naturalistic systems), Mood State Indicators (an algorithm to model mental processes involved in human speech to predict emotional states), ADAMA (a method of autonomously identifying and contextually understanding metaphors in language), the Functional Code Unit (a method for translating neurological signaling t logical data structures) and most recently, the Brain Code (a multivariate analytical model designed to extract emergent properties of the brain’s neuronal system).

Dr. Howard is a professor at Oxford University and Georgetown. He currently directs the Computational Neurosciences Lab at Oxford and is the former director of the MIT Mind Machine Project and the MIT Synthetic Intelligence Lab. He founded and sits on the Board of two nonprofits: the Howard Brain Sciences Foundation, which funds innovative research initiatives to improve our understanding of the human brain and advance the diagnosis and treatment of neurological conditions; and C4ADS, which is dedicated to providing data-driven analysis and evidence-based reporting on global conflict and transnational security issues.

Dr. Wieger Wamelink works as ecologist at Wageningen University & Research (WUR) in the Netherlands. As senior researcher he works on the effects of nitrogen deposition and climate change on biodiversity, especially on plant species. He is also one of the caretakers of the nature gardens on the Wageningen campus and as campus ecologist responsible for the management of the green areas on the campus. In 2013 Wieger started Food For Mars and Moon with as goal to crow crops on Mars and the moon applying the regoliths present at the planets. The research includes the effects of heavy metals present in the regoliths on the growth, effect of cosmic radiation on the plant growth, the application of human faeces as manure and the need to bring worms, bacteria and pollinators to create a sustainable closed agricultural ecosystem. To boldly grow where no plant has grown before.
