Herewith we announce our board of advisors to provide the right insight for growth and progression as we evolve our business with exactness and purpose to make, manage, move, market, and maintain ecosystem solutions, and smart & connected products and services.

“I welcome our advisors with whom we counsel as we evolve our business practices to progress with speed to achieve our objectives” said Nitin Uchil, Founder and CEO of Numorpho Cybernetic Systems (NUMO) “We believe that the background and the wealth of knowledge and experience our advisors bring will help us grow with meaningful purpose as we pivot to Industry and Services 5.0 to build smart and connected products with human-centric qualities and define new concepts in Intelligence and Cybernetics.”


Dr. Shreekumar S Vinekar, MD – Mentor and Chief Advisor for building Intelligence capabilities

Dr. Vinekar is Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Oklahoma College of Medicine, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and is a subject matter expert in Psychoanalysis, Neuroscience, and Eastern and Western Philosophies. Since 2014, he is in full-time private medical psychiatric practice at Fidelity Mental Health Services in Oklahoma City. He was formerly briefly associated with The Carter Jenkins Center of Tampa, Florida as a trainee for a few years.


Dr. Vinekar, my uncle, is a physician, philosopher and a subject matter expert in Eastern and western thinking and professor Emeritus of my alma mater, the University of Oklahoma’s Health and Medical Sciences college. When I started my first company, Mindware in 1996 to create a model driven basis for IT architecture (what has now morphed into what we call no code), I was also dabbling into the structure of written and spoken language. It is then that my uncle suggested to use the grammar of Sanskrit and Korean to formulate the basis for translation of NLP based constructs. Since then, he has been advising me on the basis of instilling intelligence into human-machine interactions. More recently we have published several papers on what we call Existential Intelligence (EI) whose basis is to utilize a 5th order of Cybernetics (which we are also defining) to make AI more pragmatic, sentient, contextual and actionable. This has become the basis for new AI of late where tenets proposed by David Chalmers (the hard problem of consciousness) and Judea Pearl (the ladder of Causality, correlation is not causation) and where companies like Deep Mind and Causal AI are doing pioneer work to make AI/ML less brittle.”

Scott McGowan – Strategic Advisor for Digital Transformations and Go-To-Market Activities.

Scott has extensive career experience in general management, business strategy, marketing, product management and business development. He spent the first half of his career on the commercial side of manufacturing companies, and the second half in management consulting focused on digital strategy and transformation, most recently with Accenture. He is currently the CEO of VioLume, Inc, an early-stage manufacturer in the healthcare space. Scott has an MBA from Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University, and a BA in Economics from Cornell University.


“Scott McGowan is a strategist and digital transformer who examines the business case with a high degree of acumen to formulate the plan for the future. When at Acquity Group and then at Accenture, we have worked with more than 5 clients and collaborated on lifting and shifting old processes from brick and mortar to digital. These were during the formative years of Content Management, Ecommerce and Digi9tal Marketing where we had to understand start-ups and their capabilities, do platform selection, and suggest integration modalities between platform like SAP, Oracle, IBM, Adobe, Salesforce and all their acquisitions. Scott is amazing at putting together a structure for Governance and Change Management, and we work great in tandem to design the perfect blueprint for interactions.”

Prof. V. “Paddy” Padmanabhan – Advisor for Innovation and Disruptive Methodologies.

Paddy is the Unilever Chaired Professor of Marketing and the Academic Director of the Emerging Markets Institute at INSEAD. Prior to INSEAD, he was on the business school faculty at Stanford and Washington University. He was also a Visiting Professor at the Wharton School of Business and Kellogg Graduate School of Management. His research has received numerous awards including recognition as one of the Ten Most Influential Papers in Management Science’s First Fifty Years (1954-2004) of publication. He has consulted, served as expert witness, and created Executive Education courses for companies ranging from multinationals (e.g., Hewlett-Packard, Nokia, Anheuser-Busch, Lufthansa, Target, Johnson & Johnson, Syngenta, OCBC, Westpac, etc.) to start-ups (e.g., Engage, Tyfone, Overstone, Eruditus, Mindseed, etc.) across N. America, Europe, Asia, and Oceania.


“Dr. Paddy Padmanabhan is my peer from IIT-Varanasi (BHU) and a professor at INSEAD in Singapore who a has an amazing take on pivoting companies to adapt to business changes. This business process looks at dreamers and doers, and proposes a methodology called the Phoenix Encounter that breaks strategy into Groundwork, Battlefield and Breakthrough to define a themed progression for growth and competition. It also proposes that sometimes it is necessary to “burn” current concepts to the ground and take a fresh new approach to business. I have used his three tenets to craft out the strategy for NUMO and also based it on two additional dimensions – the Art of War (Chinese) and the Five Rings (Japanese Samurai). The article on Embracing Disruption summarizes this. Paddy advises us on perfecting the Business Canvas, our purpose, and the extent of digital transformation of where we should be mindful of its shortcomings (squaring the circle) and opportunities in omni-channel. His favorite phrase to define cyber-physical is: the mélange of atoms and bits/bytes.”
