Teresa Escrig is the founder and CEO of Cognitive Robots. A PhD in Computer Science, Dr. Escrig has been a professor at the University Jaume I, in Castellon, Spain, for 19 years, and the Head of the research group "Cognition for Robotics Research" for over 10 years.

She is the author of 3 technical books, more than 90 research articles, and numerous awards, including a National Prize on Science and Technology, 2004.
When she finished her PhD in the field of Artificial Intelligence, in 1997, Dr. Escrig had the vision that the cognitive theoretical models, that she had developed for her PhD thesis, was a much better option for bringing intelligence to robots. From vision to product, she has led the development of the product "Cognitive Brain for Service Robotics ®", that allows any vehicle to be transformed into an autonomous robot. Dr. Escrig is a renaissance researcher, visionary, out of the box thinker, and a passionate and effective leader. She is a natural seeker of different paths to solutions that defy the status quo.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
