Arctop was founded in San Francisco, California in 2016 by neuroscientist Dan Furman, Ph.D., and software engineer Eitan Kay to create software that understands human brain activity. The two met at Google Tel Aviv in Israel Brain Technologies accelerator where Eitan was working on stroke rehabilitation technology and Dan was developing a brain-machine interface for communication. Seeing a convergence of AI tools, biosensors, and compute power becoming available at a global scale and sharing a vision for what a “fully-connected human” could mean, the two decided to team-up and start developing for a wider audience. The idea quickly became to build the best real-time brain decoding platform possible – an enabling piece of technology that could be plugged into the broader ecosystem to make things responsive to streaming emotion, attention and other brain-related measures. If such a platform were done right, Eitan and Dan reckoned, a whole new class of entertainment, health, training, and other applications could emerge that would be individual brain-centric and dynamic in ways that would create radical new abilities. With first proof-of-concept, Arctop raised seed funding from venture and angel investors and in 2017 opened its R&D center in Tel Aviv, Israel. In 2019 Arctop opened its first foreign sales office in Tokyo, Japan and moved to its current headquarters at 730 Florida Street, San Francisco, California.
