Dr. Avinash Kumar Singh

Avinash Kumar Singh, Ph.D. is an Australian Research Council Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Australian Artificial Intelligence Institute (formerly known as Centre for Artificial Intelligence) in the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Australia, and Founder of the India Future Society. He is also a member of Transhumanism Australia and actively advocates and promotes transhumanism.
Avinash completed his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science in 2019 from UTS, Australia in collaboration and support with the Technical University of Berlin, Germany, University of California San Diego, USA, and the US Army Research Lab. Before his doctorate, he earned his Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics in 2007 from Chhatrapati Shahu Ji Maharaj University, India, and his Master’s in Software Systems in 2013 from the Birla Institute of Technology and Science Pilani, India. During these years of study and work, he worked on various topics in human-centered technologies focusing on brain-computer interfaces (BCIs).
Avinash has developed several systems such as “web-browser for the blind based on natural language processing”, “a brain-computer interface (BCI) system for communication”, “an eating-assistant system for the user with a disability”, “a closed-loop system to evaluate and adapt user’s feeling in Virtual Reality”, etc. He also serves the IEEE Standards committee on Neuroethics and BC, and recently received the Google TensorFlow Faculty Award 2021 to support and promote work in BCI.
His current research interests are integrating artificial intelligence (Al) technologies with cognitive neuroscience knowledge to explore cognitive functions, discover the relationships between brain dynamics, evaluate everyday interactions, and make decisions, and develop the robust next-generation of brain-computer interfaces.
