The autonomous revolution is upon us, and it’s not just for cars. In the not-too-distant future, large scale unmanned drones will begin populating our skies: transporting cargo, fighting fires, delivering wi-fi, and even flying people around the world. Also known as unmanned aerial systems or UAS, these drones will be using AI to talk to each other as they move fluidly through the sky. By 2036, the industry is expected to be $30 billion and creating 60,000 jobs. Hear from the experts about the technologies that are being developed today, including the opportunities and challenges for autonomous flight.
