Silicon Harlem takes a broad, city view to prepare communities for emerging technology and to ensure that no one gets left behind.
We look to partner with institutions, colleges and universities, and large private companies to trial tech-enabled corridors in real-time. We specialize in creating micro testbeds for AI, urban sensors, AR, VR, and the metaverse in our facilities and across the city that create access and experimentation.
One of our priorities, in addition to making technology accessible, is to make it resilient. In partnership with the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), Silicon Harlem launched RISE, a business recovery and resiliency program working to help New York City’s small businesses adapt to and mitigate the impacts of climate change through the use of innovative technologies. Silicon Harlem led this initiative in East Harlem through the deployment of a connected mesh network providing disaster-resistant wireless technology and emergency communications at no costs to local businesses.
