Below is our recent interview with Felipe Castro Quiles, CEO and Jean Garcia Periche, President of GENIA:

Q: Gentlemen, what is GENIA?

A: GENIA is a regional Artificial Intelligence platform born at SingularityU on the NASA base in Silicon Valley, with the mission of developing the Fourth Latin American Industrial Revolution.

GENIA has a network of dozens of international experts in artificial intelligence, and works on science and technology projects together with various universities and the US Department of Defense, and is leading LATAM 4.0 -the first artificial intelligence coalition in Latin America.

A Public Benefit Corporation, GENIA is dedicated to representing a vision of the future that benefits every individual, recognizing Latin America’s crucial role in shaping that future. We deeply appreciate the rich history and vibrant culture of the region, and we aim to integrate this valuable knowledge into our decision-making processes as we navigate the fourth industrial revolution. Our objective is to collaborate closely with local communities, businesses, and governments to identify and seize opportunities for growth and development.

We firmly believe that by harnessing the unique talents and perspectives of Latin America, we can forge a future that is more just, inclusive, and prosperous for all. As a company, we are fully committed to forging strong alliances in LATAM and investing in its people, infrastructure, and economy. Together, we can collectively build a better today each and every day, that will benefit all generations to come.

Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?

A: As this article goes to print, we will be in meetings with government officials in DC discussing a potential US-LATAM partnership.

We’re currently working on “The Future of Human Governance” project sponsored by the Department of Defense with principal investigation led by Utah State University.

Additionally, we are working toward the realization of our Regional Innovation Engines Proposal before the National Science Foundation (NSF) to advance critical technologies with partners in Arizona and across the nation; such as semiconductors, artificial intelligence, advanced wireless, and biotechnology, and to address pressing national and societal challenges.

GENIA is continually enhancing the capacity of LATAM 4.0, which will be paired with our Regional AI Strategy, to lead the region’s collaborative transition towards the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This will be achieved by deploying LATAM’s resources and potential in AI talent, as well as leveraging our common characteristics.
