​Taliaz CEO, Dekel Taliaz, invited to join as a panel member of the OECD workshop Shanghai, China


September 2018 //

The panel on 6-7th of September, titled “Minding Neurotechnology: delivering responsible innovation for health and well-being” will explore the unique ethical, legal, and policy challenges raised by health-related applications of science in the brain and its integration into cutting edge neurotechnologies. Specifically the two themes of: digitalisation, and technology convergence.


The workshop is convened by the OECD Working Party on Biotechnology, Nanotechnology, and Converging Technologies (BNCT) and in collaboration with the China National Center for Biotechnology Development (CNCBD), Beijing, People’s Republic of China. The workshop is hosted by the Tongji University School of Medicine (TUSM), Shanghai, People’s Republic of China, and supported by The Kavli Foundation and the Korea Legislation Research Institute (KLRI). 


The goal of this workshop is to provide an opportunity for innovators to discuss strategies for delivering responsible innovation in health and well-being applications of neurotechnology.


In the rapidly developing field of neurotechnology, there is great economic potential and it is quickly becoming a part of clinical laboratories and advanced therapeutic applications. As neurotechnology advances, research will be reshaped significantly. therapy, and the capabilities of humans, considerations regarding the possible ethical issues and social implications are needed. 


In the past few years, governments, academia, industry, and private foundations have made substantial investments in brain research and neurotechnology, and a number of national and international “brain projects” have emerged. In response to calls at the highest national and international policy levels, these programmes are designed to address challenges associated with mental illnesses and neurological disorders, which cause great human suffering and low economic productivity.


Taliaz’s CEO, Dekel Taliaz, will share how its scientific-AI-driven technology to tailor mental health treatment to the right patient the first time, is an example of technologies bringing together digitization, and technology to transform care.
