Time Machine 2018: Kim Jackson Ryan, Forging a Human-Machine Alliance
Kim Jackson Ryan believes the key to a more productive future is in establishing trust between humans and machines.
Jackson Ryan is a Senior Human Systems Engineer for Draper, a company of engineers who bring a multidisciplinary advantage to system design for the public and private sectors. Here, Jackson Ryan engineers solutions to optimize human behavior and performance during mission-critical operations. She works to improve human-machine collaboration through the design of intuitive operator interfaces for mission planning and command. This work is rooted in her understanding that AI-powered machines are not just a tool, but a teammate.
Jackson Ryan’s academic foundation is impressive. She received a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, following a bachelor’s degree from MIT in the same field. Jackson Ryan worked to develop intuitive collision avoidance methods for smartphone-based control of a small aerial vehicle. This was only the beginning of her work in optimizing human-machine interaction.
Jackson Ryan strives to create a constructive society in which humans embrace AI-enabled machines as co-workers, teammates, and collaborators. She will be at Time Machine this year to discuss her work to establish trust between humans and autonomous systems, and how humanity can benefit from adopting a positive outlook over AI innovation.
