"Throughout my 20+ year career in technology I’ve always been driven by the human side of IT. Whether that’s been through helping people interact with the technologies that are permeating our day-to-day lives, or by improving the way we work and play through technical innovation. To me, technology has always been about people. That’s exactly what excites me about what we’re doing at Pandora Cybernetics.
When I think about the future of Pandora Cybernetics, I think of ways we can bring people closer together. Emotional artificial intelligence can build bridges between cultures by removing demographic stereotypes. It can build safety nets for people who are different or alone. It can help us be better humans.
When I’m not working with Pandora Cybernetics, I enjoy volunteering with organizations focused on building diversity in STEM. "

"Can machines feel emotions?
That question has obsessed me since I was a little boy reading the novels of Isaac Asimov.
While I don't know if machines will ever feel the way that you or I feel... I do believe that they can be taught to identify how we feel. To understand how we feel and react appropriately.
That is the guiding principal behind Pandora Cybernetics. We want to improve the way that machines understand Human Beings."
