Andres Rico

City Science
  • Research Assistant

Humanist | Inventor | Tinkerer | Maker | Engineer | Developer | Designer

Andres is a graduate student from Mexico City at the MIT Media Lab with a background in Robotics, AI and Innovation. His main research goal is to understand ways in which we can humanize and democratize technology.

His work aims to enable society to enjoy the most humane aspects of life through inventions that range from devices that rethink bikes as city sensors to neural network implementations that use environmental sensor inputs to classify human affective states.

As an undergraduate student, he co-founded an innovation firm (OGMA D+I) and was a member of MITʼs Regional Entrepreneurship Acceleration Program in Monterrey, Mexico where he worked with city stakeholders on the development of the regionʼs innovation and entrepreneurship capabilities.

His current work at MIT is focused on the development of multi-sensor systems and machine intelligence models capable of digitally interpreting human behavior, user well being and performance with the goal of enabling smarter communities.
