Asian Development Bank: A good thing for your business, says CEO

In a speech to investors on Thursday, Asian Development Banks (ADB) chief executive officer Mark Wong said that ADB’s recent investment in a research institute, a cognitive development example company, will help the bank advance its business and research.

“The ADB is a strong proponent of the use of cognitive enhancement technology for enhancing students’ abilities to think and solve problems,” Mr Wong said in the speech, adding that the bank is also considering investing in an “academic” technology research lab.

“It is clear to us that the cognitive development industry is growing and that there is an urgent need for more research on this area,” he said.

Mr Wong was responding to a question about ADB investing in the research institute.

“We’re very excited about this opportunity because we want to do everything we can to ensure that ADBs research is well informed and informed in a way that will enable us to provide our customers with the best possible training for future jobs,” he told the investors in the ADB Annual General Meeting.

ADB has invested $5.5 million into the Cognitive Development Technology Initiative, which aims to provide training and support to businesses and research institutions to help them develop new and more effective technologies for enhancing the human brain.

The institute, which was set up in March, is focused on “the design, development and evaluation of cognitive training tools, including cognitive enhancement tools”, the bank said.

The ADB said the institute is one of a number of such initiatives it is working on, and the ADI has received support from the National Science Foundation and the Federal Government’s Department of Energy, Environment and Trade.

Mr Wang said the ADBs focus on cognitive enhancement was not just about the institute, but also related to other areas, including research into the potential impact of a variety of technologies, including the Internet of Things.

The bank’s other focus is the ADS, a non-profit organisation focused on improving health and wellbeing of Australians.

“Our focus is on health and well-being and, as part of our work, we’re also investing in more innovative research,” Mr Wang told investors.

“There is a huge demand for information about cognitive training, but we’re focused on that in a number, not just one, area.”

The ADBs new focus on training for the ADCs new role As part of the new focus, ADB will also focus on enhancing the skills and abilities of its staff.

It will now be able to train its staff on how to deal with cognitive challenges, including those that stem from Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, dementia and depression.

Mr Wright said that the ADIB’s research team is currently working on a number projects related to cognitive enhancement, including one that was completed this year on how best to develop a new tool that could help dementia patients to better focus their minds and communicate with caregivers.

The tool, which is called the Mindmap, is intended to help people to understand the brain’s functions, and help them to focus more effectively and improve their cognitive skills, Mr Wright added.

“This tool will allow us to better understand and improve the cognitive capabilities of people with cognitive disabilities,” he explained.

The project is still in early stages and will require “quite some work on our end, including a lot of research”.

Mr Wright told investors the new training tool would also be used in research that deals with the impact of the internet on our lives.

“I think we have a very good case to make that the internet has really, really changed how we think about our lives,” he noted.

The ADI also has its eye on the future. “

For instance, what I would say to people with dementia is, ‘we have a cognitive function and we are able to work with a lot more detail, and we can communicate with a much greater range of people, and our cognitive functioning is really improved.'”

The ADI also has its eye on the future.

“In terms of where we are going to be in 10 to 20 years, the ADIs research programme will hopefully take us into that future,” Mr Wright continued.

“But what we’re really focusing on now is building a business, so that we can help our customers better understand the research we are doing in this area.”
