Brian Cohn Ph.D.

I'm a biologist with a penchant for product developmentā€”leveraging AI, statistical modeling, and hardware prototyping to solve issues in healthcare and biotechnology. Alongside my ongoing research, I pursue and accept industry projects. For executives and entrepreneurs who want to incorporate elements of digital health into their product strategy, I provide strategic consulting, project contracting, and IP licensing of my existing products.

Talk: SnapMove

IEEE AIVR Conference on December 14, 2020

We present SnapMove a technique to reproject reaching movements inside Virtual Reality. SnapMove can be used to reduce the need of large, fatiguing or difficult motions in VR

Game Design for Neurophysiological Studies

Some of my recent projects include a tendon-driven robot that teaches itself to walk Nature Machine Intelligence, 2020
"Autonomous functional movements in a tendon-driven limb via limited experience" Check out the supplemental videos!
, a signal processing algorithm that characterizes corticospinal neurophysiology from a muscle, an AI-driven tool for speech-language pathologists, and a game AI that procedurally redesigns itself. With projects spanning across hospitals, universities, and biotechnology companies, I have the honor of collaborating with cutting edge researchers and clinicians in making digital health solutions more accessible. Beyond the science, I love chipotle adobo sauce, slightly burnt garlic, and piping hot cocoa. Not all at the same time.

I wear many hats:
