Jody creates superhumans, not supercomputers. Rather than teaching humans the right buttons to push, she uses cognitive computing (AI, AR/VR, robotics, sensors, etc) to speak human. Her most notable work includes UX design for DARPA’S Big Dog, Principal Experience Designer on the Holo Lens Project at Microsoft, HMI for Toyota’s AiCar, and Principal UX at LEAP Motion. Today, she is a futurist and product designer working to define the future of human machine interface (HMI) through radical inclusion by leveraging brain machine interface, sensors, robotics, AI, and AR/VR.
