Rockefeller Foundation Rewards WeRobotics with Grant for ‘Humanitarian Drones’ Start-up Work #DronesForGood @WeRobotics

Congrats to the team at WeRobotics for all their efforts using robotics and drones for humanitarian needs, from tracking climate change to aerial mapping the needs of communities and more. Follow them on Twitter to stay apprised of their activities.

The world is experiencing an unprecedented shift from manually controlled technologies to increasingly intelligent autonomous systems powered by artificial intelligence (AI). We 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 we founded WeRobotics, the only organization fully dedicated to accelerating and scaling humanitarian, development and environmental projects through appropriate robotics solutions.

With this vision in mind, we’re excited to share some big news with everyone: the Rockefeller Foundation has just awarded a generous start-up grant to WeRobotics so we can launch our global efforts! We’re absolutely thrilled that the world-renowned Rockefeller Foundation fully shares our vision of an emerging world where outstanding local organizations are empowered to accelerate and scale their social good impact through the use of appropriate robotics solutions.
