Heather Knight is in the bully pulpit for artificial intelligence. According to her TED profile:

Her installations have been featured at the Smithsonian-Cooper Hewitt Design Museum, LACMA, SIGGRAPH, PopTech and the Fortezza da Basso in Florence, Italy. Her past work also includes robotics and instrumentation at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, interactive installations with Syyn Labs (including the award- winning Rube Goldberg machine music video with OK Go), and sensor design at Aldebaran Robotics. She was recently named Assistant Director of Robotics at Humanity+.

Her Nao Robot was shown at the 2012 World Maker Faire in New York and she collaborated with SynLabs to create the colossally complex installation featured in OKGo’s music video for “This Too Shall Pass.” Her venture Marilyn Monrobot aims to use art to create technology. Check out the website to view many of her past projects, as well as a very impressive CV. Here’s a video of her TED talk entitled Silicon-based Comedy:
