Animesh Koratana

Animesh Koratana is a rising senior at Northview High School and an independent researcher at the Johns Hopkins Department of Computer Science and the Stanford Department of Computational Neuroscience. He works at the crossroads of neuroscience, mathematics and computer science. He is currently working on memory induction technology to help further our understanding of the neuroanatomy of the human brain-mind interface. Koratana’s pioneering work is in the induction of the psychological phenomena of fluid intelligence in artificially intelligent cognitive systems.

Koratana is also the founder and president of Northview Techno Titans Robotics Foundation, with a mission to compete and spread STEM education throughout the community. His interests lie in the fields of computational neuroscience and artificial intelligence, specifically to help solve the largest problems facing artificial intelligence today using mechanisms already found in our brains.

Koratana started his research career during the summer of his sophomore year in high school and continued to explore fields in the domain of artificial intelligence. His first major project was in the field of financial modeling using genetics as an encoding mechanism. This introduction into the mathematical realm of artificial intelligence served as a stepping stone for a set of further research he conducted to model psychological and neuro-anatomical functions in artificial intelligence. 

Koratana is the recipient of the Third Grand Award at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, the Yale Science & Engineering Award, the Mu Alpha Theta Mathematics Award, the Intel Award in Computer Science, and the Pinnacle award at the Georgia Science and Engineering Fair. He plans to extend his research in the following years.
