Welcome / Bienvenid@


Welcome to my blog.

My name is Juan Jesús Roldán Gómez. I am assistant professor at the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM). I got a PhD in Automation and Robotics (2014-2018), Bsc+MSc in Industrial Engineering (2006-2012) and MSc in Automation and Robotics (2013-2014) from the Technical University of Madrid (UPM). I did a postdoc at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), I took part in robotics projects with SENER and Airbus, and I performed a research stay at the University of Luxembourg. During the last years, I have researched about robotics, robotics applied to agriculture, adaptive & immersive interfaces, artificial intelligence, and virtual & augmented reality.

If you are interested in my work, please send me an email:


Until next time!

Leonardo Project: The simulator

The third video of my project "Training robots for intervening in dangerous environments: development and application of reinforcement learning models" granted by a Leonardo Fellowship of the BBVA Foundation is out! This video shows the simulator developed to train the artificial intelligence models that control the robot in its mission.

Leonardo Project: An introduction

My project "Training robots for intervening in dangerous environments: development and application of reinforcement learning models" granted by a Leonardo Fellowship of the BBVA Foundation is finishing soon. For this reason, I have prepared a series of videos where I explain the project. In this first video I present the project, talking among other things about robotics, autonomy, artificial intelligence, machine learning, reinforcement learning or imitation learning.

Videogames developed in class in 2021-2022

These videogames have been developed by the students of Introduction to Videogame Programming (Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science and Engineering, Autonomous University of Madrid) during the academic year 2021-2022. Proud of how far we have come in such a short time!

Somos Científicos y Científicas

 


This month I have taken part in the Somos Científicos y Científicas initiative of the Fundación Española para la Ciencia y Tecnología (FECYT). During this time, I have had the opportunity to answer the questions of high-school students from all over Spain. They have asked me amazing questions about robotics and artificial intelligence, researchers' life, and how to become a robotics researcher. "Will robots take away our jobs?", "What will robots do in 20 years?", "How does AI work with robots?" or "What is the relationship between Maths and AI?" were some of these questions.
