The Data of Drones: Balancing Innovation with Ethical Approaches to Privacy, Security, and Autonomy

Drones are poised to be used in myriad contexts over the next decade, and with them will come a wealth of data. With the ever-advancing capacity for data collection, storage, processing and analysis, there will be great potential for industry, government, and others to use data collected by drones in novel ways. But while there is great potential for innovation, collection of data also poses some risks, both for organizations and for individuals. This session will feature a group discussion between leaders at the forefront of industry, government, academia, and civil society to tackle the critical challenge of how we can harness the value of data collected by drones while keeping in mind that drone engineers must find responsible approaches to solve questions of individual privacy, data security, human autonomy, and more.
