The Leonardo Museum of Creativity and Innovation announced that they would be entering a strategic partnership with Zenerchi LLC, a Salt Lake-based biomedical simulation and visualization AI company. This decision is based on a joint-venture agreement that was established in August. The agreement was not made public until now due to Zenerchi’s official launch in October but the companies are now coming forward with further details as well as more information about their first joint exhibit that will be taking place within the next few weeks.
Bryan Brandenburg, Zenerchi CEO and Chief Science Officer, said in a statement that the partnership with The Leonardo Museum is the product of more than a year’s planning and discussions. He further mentioned that it has been the museum’s primary vision to elevate and expand the bridge between science, technology, innovation, and art. He was excited to announce that the S.T.E.A.M edutainment experience was one of their first projects and that there is no better place to premiere the exhibit than in Salt Lake City. He said that he hopes that their presence will be noticed by the Utah community as well as global organizations.
The Zenerchi platform can revolutionize the museum experience. It leverages and converges advanced capabilities of simulation including GUI/UX, AI, VR, AR, and 3D technology. The executive director of the Leonardo Museum, Alexandra Hesse, said that this technology will enable them to put every visitor at the center of every experience. She further stated that Zenerchi’s advanced technology will help them to transform museum experiences and it will help in creating an immersive environment for visitors. According to Hesse, the partnership is only the beginning of their long term business plan but it plays an important role. She mentions that it is their goal to have a lasting impact on the local and global community.
Zenerchi has employed the help of notable advisors like Dr. Michael Ferguson of Harvard Medical School and Chris Jones of Microsoft Studios. Dr. Dinesh Patel also serves on the board of both Zenerchi LLC and the Leonard Museum. Patel is a Salt Lake City venture capitalist, serial entrepreneur, scientist, and philanthropist and is playing a vital role in the alignment of the two organizations. To increase productivity and speed, the partners have decided to share space for key functions within the Leonardo. This will allow for close contact between the two teams.
The Leonardo Museum is a non-profit organization in the heart of Salt Lake City, Utah and it engages with individuals of all ages. It aims to introduce a new breed of museums that encourages hands-on learning and individualized experiences that spark curiosity and creativity. Zenerchi LLC makes the perfect partner. The company is working on several projects including the development of the number one 4D human body simulator. They have also developed the Zenerchi SimVIz AI Platform that serves industries like healthcare, wellness, and biomedical education as well as creating AR/VR experiences that are far beyond our current reach.
