QC Tech Incubator hosts first AI-search engine

QC Tech Incubator hosts first AI-search engine | The Knight News ­

Queens College’s Tech Incubator is the mini-Shark-Tank in Queens, a place for great minds to create projects and bring technological change.

The QC Tech Incubator established itself as a resource for innovative thinkers, creators, and technologists since its foundation in 2016. The Incubator has become a hub for scientific experiments, technological tinkerings, and above all, a space for geniuses to pool their knowledge and work together. On Jan. 25th, 2019, the QC Tech Incubator had reached yet another moment in the national spotlight.

NewtonX, known as “…an artificial intelligence-powered knowledge search engine that matches clients to the world’s leading investors, consultants, and technology experts…”, first found its way to the Incubator through both parties’ mutual associate: Sascha Eder. Both a co-founder of NewtonX and a member of the Incubator, it was Eder who obtained the company’s access to the resources the Incubator offers.

As Director and Chief Financial Officer of NewtonX, Eder found his way to Queens College through an international-entrepreneur program called “IN2NYC”. According to the company’s online-blog, NewtonX is the world’s “…first AI-powered knowledge marketplace”, geared towards clients of an extensive variety, ranging from banking to consulting and technology.

“Our main product is a service by which we leverage our proprietary knowledge graph to connect clients from all industries,” Eder said. “[It provides] experts they need to speak to in order to get insights for critical business decisions they otherwise couldn’t obtain”.

As reported by a press release on Queens College’s website, IN2NYC was inaugurated in 2016 by the New York City Economic Development Corporation as a partnership between the NYCEDC and CUNY schools. Tech:nyc says the purpose of this organization is to provide foreign entrepreneurs the exemption to H-1B visas.

According to Workpermit, “The US H-1B visa is a non-immigrant which visa allows US companies to employ graduate level workers in specialty occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise in specialized fields such as in IT, finance, accounting, architecture, engineering, mathematics, science, medicine, etc.” A professional must have at least a bachelor’s degree (or equivalency) in order to be eligible.

The name ‘NewtonX’ stems from the legacy of Isaac Newton, who once said “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.” The ‘X’ is what introduces the technological background; it symbolizes the “edge” the technology brings forth.

For those inspired by Eder and his company’s accomplishments, TIQC is the first step to take in the direction of building a startup. As listed on the QC website, “Harnessing the advanced computational infrastructure and intellectual resources of Queens College of the City University of New York, TIQC creates an outstanding co-working environment for tech startups.” For students and faculty, there are individual and shared work-spaces available 24/7 with a keycard.

Cardholders may work on projects with team members, or utilize the expertise of the faculty and industry leaders.

In addition to its partnership with successful NewtonX, the Tech Incubator also produced ‘Kidmoto’ back in 2016. An Uber-like car service to connect passengers with drivers equipped with federally-approved car seats, Kidmoto began laying its foundation at the TIQC. Nelson Nigel, the founder and CEO of the company, was, at the time, one of about 10 startups that originated within QC, says NY1. In an interview Nigel expressed his hope for a more “kid-friendly” car service.

The Tech Incubator at Queens College is located at 65-30 Kissena Blvd. CEP Hall 2.
