Last month GENIUS NY joined swissnex Boston during Boston's HUBWeek for a showcase on all things drones called Aerial Futures: The Drone Frontier. HUBWeek is dedicated to showcasing and celebrating innovations at the intersection of art, science and technology.
More than 25 researchers and entrepreneurs from Switzerland’s rapidly growing drone industry came to exchange ideas, experiences and technology with their North American counterparts and the Boston public. A“flying cage” was set up so the public could experience live demonstrations of the latest drone technologies.
Five of the six current GENIUS NY teams attended the event. Dropcopter, UsPLM, Quantifly, TruWeather and Prevision all had table displays and spoke on panels.
Jon Parry, Director of GENIUS NY also spoke on a panel regarding the future of drones and the efforts being made in New York State to grow the UAS ecosystem.
GENIUS NY is excited to continue to support swissnex in the future. Fotokite, GENIUS NY's first international team from Switzerland now has an office in Syracuse, NY and continues to grow.
