Julia Mossbridge, M.A., Ph.D
Principal Investigator and Team Lead for the LOVING AI project, Dr. Mossbridge is the President of Lia, Inc., a Visiting Scholar in the Psychology Department at Northwestern University, a Fellow at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, and the founder of Mossbridge Institute, LLC. Her focus is on teaching and learning about love and time. LOVING AIs is her bigged love-related project. Dr. Mossbridge’s interest in how time is perceived by unconscious and conscious processes has led her to examine controversial reverse-temporal effects. She is the 2014 winner of the Charles Honorton Integrative Contributions award for this work. Her book, The Premonition Code, co-authored with Theresa Cheung, is related to this work. Julia’s Ph.D. in Communication Sciences and Disorders is from Northwestern University, her M.A. in Neuroscience is from the University of California at San Francisco, and she received her B.A. with highest honors in neuroscience from Oberlin College. She invented and patented Choice Compass, a physiologically based decision-making app, and is also the co-author, with Imants Baruss, of Transcendent Mind: Re-thinking the Science of Consciousness (APA Books, 2016).
Eddie Monroe, Ph.D
Eddie Monroe is an AI researcher devoted to the creation of AGI minds with genius, wisdom, and compassion that can help us solve difficult complex problems we face in the modern world. With a background spanning psychology, software development, and artificial intelligence, Monroe works with the Loving AI project developing AI guides for human development. His work with MindCloud and Hanson Robotics, a world leader in realistic human-like robots, has involved creating emotional and motivational models underlying robot characters. His previous endeavors include the application of AI to genomics toward the goal of extending human longevity and curing aging-related diseases, with the ultimate aim of creating “AI scientists” with capabilities to make discoveries in a variety of domains. Monroe was also involved in creating a computational neuroscience simulation of the human brain’s decision-making processes, in an IARPA-funded project. Monroe holds a BS in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and a PhD in Psychology from the University of Iowa. He lives in Sonoma County, CA.

Ted Strauss is co-founder of iConscious.Global and has been a writer and teacher of awakening for over 40 years. For 10 years he taught Transcendental Meditation, helping hundreds to awaken consciousness. After decades of deeper searching and transformation in his personal domains, he then spent 19 years building the foundations of the Waking Down work, including designing and presenting core dharma workshops and the mentor and teacher training programs. During that time, he worked very personally with thousands of students to assist their whole being awakening process. Simultaneously, Ted experimented with many ways of mapping personal development. Through this experience, Ted has discovered ways to streamline awakening and personal development, enabling most aspirants to experience major shifts in days or months instead of years or lifetimes. Ted also integrates his experience with computer programming to create electronic means for accelerating personal and collective unfoldment. Ted is currently involved in the Loving AI project, using AI to support awakening using the iConscious human development model as a dialog framework.
