The world is experiencing an unprecedented shift from manually controlled technologies to increasingly intelligent autonomous systems powered by artificial intelligence (AI).
I believe this radical shift in efficiency and productivity can have significant positive social impact if it is channeled responsibly, locally and sustainably.
This is why my team and I founded WeRobotics, the only organization fully dedicated to accelerating and scaling the positive impact of humanitarian, development and environmental projects through the appropriate use of AI-powered robotics solutions.
I’m thrilled to announce that the prestigious Rockefeller Foundation shares our vision–indeed, the Foundation has just awarded WeRobotics a start-up grant to take Humanitarian Robotics to the next level.
We’re excited to leverage the positive power of robotics to help build a more resilient world in line with Rockefeller’s important vision.
This high-resolution aerial map from Nepal, for example, was created using automated aerial robotics to inform damage assessment and recovery efforts following the 2015 Earthquakes.
