"Beyond AI: Psychological Emulation of the Human Mind"

Neuric’s brain is a general purpose learning and thinking
system embodying psychology, feelings and emotion.
Its diverse application to intelligence, network management,
autonomous vehicles is essentially unlimited.
The current ability to acquire and use knowledge from
Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) exceeds the classical Expert System goals.
It is one of those uncommon milestone technologies poised to
change the world, much as social media has.
Neuric will be demonstrating both early and current
generations of its brain.
Thomas A. Visel has strong cross-disciplinary skills and currently
serves as a founder and the CTO of Neuric Technologies, LLC, where he
has guided development of a new form of AI, a true brain. The feelings
and emotion of that brain are part of the look-and-feel of human
interaction. The first delivered brain is currently being applied and
evaluated in areas of national security and network management.
His background includes the creation of electro-optic devices for both
imaging and display. He has managed the development and characterization
of photo-diode, CMOS, and CCD imagers, Liquid-crystal-on-silicon (LCOS)
display devices, and the design of electronics for them. He has
personally developed many FPGA-based drivers and sequencers for the
prototyping, characterization or production test of silicon-based LC
displays. These included both monochrome and field sequential color
devices. Thomas has also created interfaces for many TFT and STN-DD flat
panel displays, and written low-level BIOS software to support them.
Mr. Visel has developed a proprietary emotion and temperament-based
model of the human brain and the emulation of human thought, for
application in both military and commercial fields, patents pending per
Mr. Visel holds a number of patents and patents-pending. These include
three personal patents pending in emotion-based emulation of human
thought, on brain modeling and in its application to asymmetric warfare.
On behalf of clients, he has filed patents pending in
nanotechnology-based sensors, with three in nerve agent and oxygen
sensors, and one on high voltage drivers for field emitter video
displays. He holds three patents in distortion removal in holographic
images and in semiconductor packaging, and presently has an allowed
patent in artificial intelligence. He has a BSCE/EE from the University
of Illinois, 1974.
