“Lisanne is a remarkable individual possessing unique wisdom and insight into how to incorporate life's principles, the natural world, and spiritual wisdom within the Age of AI. We are currently in The Big AI Pause, contemplating the appropriate steps to cultivate the future of new intelligence on our planet. Leaders would indeed benefit from her approach to infuse benevolence into AI for the betterment of our species and life on Earth.
As an internationally recognized global leader in Ethical AI and Global AI Ethics, it is not often that I encounter an individual who understands intelligence at such a profound level. Through my interactions with Lisanne and her pioneering work, I have found her to be professional and thoughtful in explaining deep concepts regarding intelligence and the alignment of the artificial with the organic. In fact, I plan to showcase her video on GRACE OES during a keynote speech I am delivering to an audience of 2000, as part of a new vision for mankind in the Age of AI. Lisanne is a promising young mind to guide our future and provide a critical North Star to dawn a beneficial era of intelligence for the betterment of humanity.”

“In April 2020 Lisanne led a workshop called INTERFACING WITH NATURE as part of the BA Architectural Design studio I was leading at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. The workshop couldn’t have been more timely; as Covid-19 was taking hold across the world and we were each faced with our absolute interdependence with nature, Lisanne wove together an exploratory journey into possible future scenarios, including Gaïa, in which humans, nature and technology shift into balance. She effortlessly combined an introduction to bio-technology in materials with embodied practices, leading the students on a guided walk outside to listen to nature in the city, at just the moment they needed it most. She took care to situate her work within emerging practices of more-than-human design and to communicate the layers of complexity in her work with clarity and attentiveness to the students and their interests.”
