Systems driven by machine learning techniques should evolve along with people.

I am a data engineer from Spain with enthusiasm for modeling physical systems and dealing with optimization problems. I have an MSc in Industrial and Mechanical Engineering from the University of Navarra. My interest in Artificial Intelligence (AI) was born at MIT Media Lab. There, I led a research initiative called Algorithmic Zoning as part of my master’s thesis. The project was connected to CityScope, a data-driven platform developed by the City Science group to encourage a more collaborative decision-making process in urbanism. I used agent-based modeling to represent citizens’ behaviours when choosing their housing and mobility options.
