Laura Leenhouts

Innovation Group, Newell Brands

Laura takes ideas and dialogue from flat to fully dimensional through Graphic Recording, the practice of using images and text to capture the essence of presentations and conversations in a highly engaging visual format.

An architect by education, she has moved from architecture to R+D to research, consulting to innovation.  While working in innovation my synthesizing, listening and artistic skills coalesced—allowing me to capture thoughts and ideas in real time, creating visual artifacts that create deeper engagement and understanding. During my tenure at different companies, I’ve worked across divisions and segments, helping identify areas of strategic growth for the company and then working to research, design and facilitate workshops that discover new concepts for business growth.

Janelle Shane

Writer, AIweirdness.com

Janelle Shane's machine learning humor blog, AIweirdness.com, looks at ways that algorithms can surprise and amuse us – even when they fail. Her experiments feature neural networks that try to invent human things like recipes, paint colors and Halloween costumes, to mixed (but hilarious) results. 

AIweirdness.com has been covered in the Guardian, the Atlantic, NBC News, Slate, All Things Considered, and more. She has only made a neural network recipe once and discovered that horseradish brownies are about as terrible as you might imagine.
