Jody Medich

Singularity University
Director of Design

Jody creates superhumans, not supercomputers. Rather than teaching humans the right buttons to push, she uses perceptual computing (AI, AR/VR, robotics, sensors, etc) to speak human. The resulting tools dramatically augment and amplify human abilities and are as easy to control as our own bodies. She might read too much Batman. But in her 23-year design career, Jody has created just about everything from holograms to robots and R&D. Her most notable work includes UX design for DARPA’S Big Dog, Principal Experience Designer on the HoloLens Project at Microsoft, HMI for Toyota’s AiCar, and Principal UX at LEAP Motion. Today, she is Director of Design for Singularity University Labs, where she incubates solutions to Global Grand Challenges using exponential technologies. She also travels the world speaking about the future of these technologies and their impact on the world for Singularity University and groups like WIRED, Google, and TEDx.
