The ISE article, “Get Smart with Your Contracts,” was co-written with Alejandro Garach Martinez (MITO ’17) and Juan Martinez Rodriguez (MITO ’17), based on their graduate student projects about blockchain technology. The article discusses blockchain technology and how it is enabling business value advancement in everything from manufactured goods to online music.
