Another batch of talented SU students made it through this awesome summer experience!
All really interesting concepts, but here are my favorites:
This is going to be an increasingly fertile space, lots of room for innovation using machine vision, classification, graph analysis algorithms here. It is only natural to see this space go into a classic hype cycle and see a constellation of ventures deciding to specialize into verticals (real estate, disaster response, traffic analysis, urban planning etc.)
This is one of those concepts that is absolutely needed, and the basic ingredients make sense, and it may end up being the first venture to leverage compound micro-fluidics in a mainstream consumer context.
There is definitely a market for public safety drones that can carry a sensor payload designed to do a near real-time data acquisition of disaster zone conditions. Swarm formations that can figure out optimal coverage patterns and delegate sectors to each asset would be beneficial. All of this acquired data can then be analyzed in the cloud.
It’s a starter version of those cool looking surveillance drones in the movie Prometheus. The value proposition is not the drone tech nor the sensor package. It’s the OS that ties the sensors together, manages swarms, and assesses data.
Definitely a great market here, but crowded space for companies that take the adaptive learning path for structured subjects. My gut says that the breakthrough learning startup in this space will be immersive and experiential. Oculus is a piece of that puzzle. But content will be the king maker.
Is interesting from an algorithmic sense. But with autonomous EVs of the future increasingly becoming a high-utilization shared commodity, I am not sure there is going to be that much surplus energy to monetize into the grid with.
