Robots and Blockchain, Eduardo Castello Ferrer

Research Affiliate

Eduardo is a Marie Curie Fellow in the Human Dynamics and the City Science groups at the MIT Media Lab.  He is working with Prof. Alex ('Sandy') Pentland in order to explore the combination of robots and blockchain technology.  Eduardo  received his B.Sc.(Hons) Intelligent Systems from Portsmouth University (UK) and his M.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees in Robotics Engineering from Osaka University (Japan). Currently, Eduardo is also working with Kent LarsonLuis Alonso and Arnaud Gringard to develop new solutions for distributed robotic systems in urban environments.


“ Postdoctoral research fellow at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) ”

Researcher specialized in robotics. I have collaborated on international projects in Japan, Europe and the United States, with world-class academics such as Alex ('Sandy') Pentland and Hiroshi Ishiguro. Currently conducting research and participating in projects on robotics and blockchain technology.

I have written in various generalist publications such as El País, El Mundo as well as scientific publications such as Advanced Robotics or Swarm Intelligence. My projects have had repercussions in several media outlets, like BBC, Wired, The Guardian or MIT Technology Review. I've given masterclasses and lectures at international congresses such as ICRA, EMTECH or GREX.

My goal is to build new distributed robotic systems that can change the way humanity feeds, communicates, transports and lives. These new decentralized technologies will have a great weight to build more open, fair and transparent ecosystems for their future users.

There are only three groups of people: Those who make things happen, those who watch things happen and those who wonder what happened.

What kind are you?
