Star Trek is inevitable, and humanity is going to build it.
I am Leandro. This is my digital shed: a place where I can leave a trace of some of the things that excited me during a +20y path as a technology designer.
Head of Innovation Programs @Innovit | https://innovitsf.com/about/
The Italian Government acceleration outpost in Silicon Valley.
> Head of Design @Fyberloom (Ai-based "GPS" for your knowledge)
> Head of Strategy @PAARM
> President @Frontiers Conferences (The makers of Frontiers.Health)
> Advisor @Metavethics Institute (Securing ethics for metaverses)
> Advisor @MultiplyLabs (Robots Making Precision Medicines)
> Advisor @CIID (Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design)
> Advisor @Weagle (Privacy protection for businesses)
> Advisor @Archetypeai.io (PhysicalAi)
> Former Director Exponential Technologies | NTT Disruption, CA.
I was often lucky and found myself in the right place at the right time, for example, when:
I led the design of the first UI for a 3G (smart) phone ever;
I led the small team that patented an eye-gaze user interface to control a computer (via a contactless eye-tracker);
I contributed to a patent about small display video optimization.
I rebooted the adventurous times crossing AR/VR borders through the NTT immersive technologies.
I appreciate the attention during my 100+ talks and conferences with 175K+ aggregated Slideshare views.
I am still in love with my 15+ years in design thinking, the few patents I contributed, my dirty dozen Awards, and all the books I wrote or contributed. Everything was possible because of the team I was part of, and I remember all the faces of the colleagues with whom I tried to build a better world together, a single technology at the time.
