This week on the InterDrone Podcast, we sat down with Gokul Srinivasan, the Director of Technology at Robots.Expert. Gokul has worked in drones and UAS since 2013, has an education background in robotics (unmanned aerial systems) and artificial intelligence, was listed as one of the top 5 founders in Finland in 2019 (Nordic Startup Awards), and even serves as the Dean at the School of AI in Helsinki, Finland. We spoke about the size of the drone market, and drone market size predictions, the state of VC funding within drones and UAS, how funding differs from country to country, how he sees open source technology fitting into the future of UAS, and much more.
