What seemed distant science fiction just a few years ago, is now HERE. In our excitement to embrace fascinating, new technology, we have jumped in with both feet? But what else comes with it?
Military UAVs are well understood, but the development of drones for commercial use seems poised to change everything. They have endless commercial applications: search and rescue, instant deliveries, spotting sharks offshore, pinpointing forest lightning strikes, counting polar bears! Yet, groups as disparate as the ACLU and the Tea Party are voicing serious concerns about safety, security and privacy.
Unquestionably, the eye-in-the-sky is here to stay. How do we wisely move forward, taking advantage of this immense opportunity, while side-stepping the inevitable unintended consequences? The brave new world is upon us and will affect all our lives and businesses in the coming years.
Our cutting-edge thought leaders will guide us though these questions and any others you may have!
