Arctop is a data and AI technology company, founded in San Francisco, California in 2016 by neuroscientist Dan Furman, Ph.D., and software engineer Eitan Kay.
Seeing software tools, biosensors, connectivity and computing power advances converging fast, and sharing a vision for the “fully-connected human" future, the two teamed-up to create enabling technology at the interface of brain and machine.
Arctop raised seed funding from venture and angel investors and in 2017 opened its R&D center in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Our team is made up of experienced global business leaders from Google, Apple, SAP, Nokia and Microsoft, as well as world-class scientists and engineers from Harvard, Stanford, Oxford, Weizmann Institute, Technion, and Hebrew University. Our researchers have published in leading journals including IEEE BCI, Nature, The Journal of Neurosurgery, Frontiers in Computational Neuroscience, and have given invited talks at some of the most prestigious, rigorous scientific conferences in the world.
Our technology receives real-time brain data collected by BCI sensors in head wearable devices, and uses advanced AI to extract insights mathematically based on patented, predictive models of human experience.
Do I need to implant anything?
No need! Our technology is completely non-invasive and painfree: the BCI sensors that contact your head are soft, electrically inert and passive, and the whole process is easy. You can put on and take off the devices our technology works with by yourself at anytime (more like Beats headphones than a Medtronic pacemaker).
What makes Arctop’s technology unique?
We have a patented, proprietary AI system for brain analysis that is hyper personalized and robust.
Can Arctop technology be used by paralyzed people to communicate and control wheelchairs?
Our founder/CEO Dan previously worked with physicist Stephen Hawking on his own personal BCI for communication and this application is at the core of our mission.
We are currently conducting a Clinical Feasibility Study with partners at ALYN Hospital, a comprehensive rehabilitation center for physically challenged and disabled children, adolescents and young adults located in Jerusalem, Israel. Following this study, we will share more details.
We expect to be able to update about an upcoming product release in the near future.
Can Arctop technology decode my dreams and save them as videos?
We are not offering this in our brain decoding SaaS service commercially available today, but may in future builds.
Can I buy Arctop technology for myself to use at home?
Arctop technology is currently only for businesses. But don’t fret, a consumer product offered by our partners is on the horizon. If you want to be among the first to know about it, subscribe.
