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.

Patrick Meier is an internationally recognized expert and consultant on Humanitarian Technology and Innovation. His book, “Digital Humanitarians” has been endorsed by Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Oxford, UN, Red Cross, World Bank, USAID and others.
His website iRevolutions.org is the voice of humanitarian drone use. As a measure of his influence, consider that Patrick broke the Zipline Rwanda story a few short weeks ago, and now UPS is involved.
