Brain Corporation Taps Qualcomm Exec For Board

San Diego-based Brain Corporation, a company which is developing an operating system for robots, said this week that it has added former Qualcomm President and Vice Chairman Steve Altman to its board--and also revealed that it is getting the support and backing of Qualcomm itself in its efforts. The company, which says it is developing an operating system aimed at creating autonomous, adaptive, and affordable robots using smartphone processors, is planning to make it OS available to beta developers sometime this fall. Brain Corporation said Altman was behind Qualcomm's IP licensing strategy and business. Brain Corporation is led by Dr. Eugene Izhikevich. The company is located in the Qualcomm Research Center in San Diego.
