December 4, 2019 | Symposium on Blockchain for Robotics and AI Systems

A symposium that brings together scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and key stakeholders to discuss the possibilities of blockchain technology in robotics and AI.

MIT Media Lab
75 Amherst St, Cambridge, MA 02139

Robotics and AI systems are starting to revolutionize many applications, from transportation to health care, assisted by technological advancements, such as cloud computing and novel hardware design.

However, several of the characteristics that make these systems ideal for certain future applications such as autonomy, self-learning, knowledge sharing, can also raise concerns in the evolution of the technology from academic institutions into the public sphere. Blockchain is starting to show great potential to make robotics and AI operations more secure, autonomous, flexible, and even profitable. Therefore, bridging the gap between purely scientific domains and real-world applications.

This symposium seeks to move beyond the classical view of distributed systems to advance our understanding about the possibilities and limitations of combining state-of-the art robotics and AI systems with blockchain technology.

Speakers include:
Prof. Aleksandr Kapitonov
Prof. Fabio Bonsignorio
Ms. Lydia Miller
Prof. Marco Dorigo
Prof. Alex ‘Sandy’ Pentland
Dr. Thomas Hardjono
Dr. Eduardo Castello
Emma-Jane MacKinnon-Lee
