REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Tan Le Biography

Tan Le is recognized as one of the most influential pioneers in the emerging field of brain-computer interface. An inventor, author and entrepreneur, she is the founder and CEO of EMOTIV, a San Francisco–headquartered neuroinformatics company. EMOTIV’s mission is to improve understanding of the human brain and develop a platform for researchers, developers, and consumers around the world to be part of a global innovation task force. The company’s non-invasive “brainwear” reads and interprets brainwaves, making it possible to control virtual objects with mere thoughts.

Some of Le’s engagements include Fortune 1000 and strategic clients such as Comcast, Google, and Takeda Pharmaceuticals.

Born in South Vietnam, Le migrated to Australia as a refugee with her family in 1981. In 1998, Le was named Young Australian of the Year for her community work, catapulting her into a prominent role as a social activist and public speaker. Le has been honored by the World Economic Forum (WEF) as a Young Global Leader since 2009 and served on the WEF’s Global Future Council on Neurotechnologies. Le was featured in Forbes’ 50 Names You Need to Know in 2011, and named a National Geographic Emerging Explorer in 2013. Le received the 2018 Industrial Research Institute Achievement Award for “outstanding accomplishment in individual creativity and innovation that contributes broadly to the development of industry and to the benefit of society.” In 2018, a portrait of Le was added to the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery of Australia – an honor bestowed on prominent Australians whose lives sets them apart as individuals of long-term public interest. Le’s book, "The NeuroGeneration: The New Era in Brain Enhancement That Is Revolutionizing How We Think, Work & Heal" was published in 2020.

Speaking Topics
  • My Immigration Story

    In this captivating and inspirational keynote, Tan Le recalls her early childhood fleeing war torn Vietnam – boarding a tugboat in search of a new life, four-year-old Tan Le’s mother was clutching one precious possession: a vial of poison. In the highly possible circumstance of a pirate boarding the vessel, she would feed it to her two daughters and her mother, before taking it herself.

    Against all odds, Tan Le and her family washed ashore Australia’s coast to begin a new life in a foreign country. She worked hard, and it became clear from an early age that she had immense potential. At just 16, after intense studying, she was accepted to college. Just a couple of years later she was named ‘Young Australian Of The Year.’

    Le goes on to humbly discuss her accomplishments, and how she became a spokesperson, activist, and eventually moves to the US to become CEO of Emotiv• a leading neuroscience technology company that helps individuals all over the world with groundbreaking innovations.

  • A Headset that Reads Your Brainwaves

    Tan Le’s astonishing new computer interface reads its user’s brainwaves, making it possible to control virtual objects, and even physical electronics, with mere thoughts (and a little concentration). She demos the headset, and talks about its far-reaching applications.
