Gary Marcus is professor of psychology and neural science at NYU and CEO and co-founder of the recently-formed Geometric Intelligence, Inc. His books include the New York Times best-seller “Guitar Zero“. He blogs for The New Yorker and is co-editor of the just-released collection “The Future of the Brain: Essays by the World’s Leading Neuroscientists“.
