Session: Workshop


God save the drone! Preparing for drones invasion

The drones revolution is just beginning. UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicle) were used by military historically, but now this has changed with a growing movement for using drones for non-combat purposes. The DIY drones movement help individuals, schools and organizations make UAVs for civilian uses such as aerial photography, mapping, archeology and research. Anish Mohammed and Caterina Falleni Singularity University Alumni will let the participants vision and co-design new, desirable futures about how drones could integrate with other services to enhance our everyday life. Which are the risks and opportunities to involve drones in our daily activities? Which will be the most impacted market in this sector? After a short introduction to drones story, evolution and case histories, participants will divide into groups and create visions and scenarios. Get ready for the disruptive invasion of drones. No specific tech skills required just add your visioning and creativeness!
