ZUG (22 March, 2018) — The DAV Foundation is pleased to announce Biren Gandhi, the former Head of Drone Business at Cisco Systems, as the latest addition to the foundation’s advisory board.
“Biren’s deep knowledge of the drone vertical is a crucial addition to the brain trust we are building within the DAV Foundation,” said Noam Copel, CEO and founder. “His technical knowledge is of course invaluable, but the wisdom he can share on how the drone industry will develop going forward is perhaps even more so for our work at DAV.”
Gandhi was recognized by Cisco as a Distinguished Strategist, and has a long career in spearheading strategy for disruptive technologies, including IoT, UAVs, Blockchain, Deep Learning, A.I. and Robotics. He has a highly successful track record of identifying key technology trends and has wide-ranging experience working with startups and venture capital firms. He also served as a divisional CTO at Zynga, and was a Senior Architect at Facebook.
The DAV Foundation has assembled a core operations team of professionals to accomplish the project’s long-term goals, with distinguished experts such as Mr. Gandhi providing advice and strategic perspective. Other leading experts will be announced as additions to the DAV team in the coming weeks.
The DAV Foundation’s mission is to promote and support research and development of the DAV network, as well as positioning it as the decentralized autonomous vehicle global standard. The organization is guided by the principles of transparency and openness, and invites the DAV community to help build a new way of transporting goods and people around the globe. The DAV Foundation is headquartered in Zug, Switzerland, with representation offices in Tel Aviv, Israel, San Francisco, USA and Vancouver, Canada.
