As director of WeRobotics, PopTech/Bellagio Fellow Patrick Meier accelerates the use of robotics solutions in disaster-prone countries by co-creating “Flying Labs” with local partners. These Labs use AI-powered robotics (drones) to automatically collect humanitarian data and deliver humanitarian cargo. They’ve been deployed in places like Nepal and Tanzania to assist with efforts related to disaster relief, conservation, and the delivery of essential medications.
