Drones For Good

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones are having a substantial presence in our skies and featuring in media around the world. Legislation restricting or banning the use of UAVs in various airspaces is having a direct impact on the policing, commercial, community engagement and educational potential of these technologies.

A direct correlation between augmented reality and lifelogging data repositories with UAVs bring this technology even further into contention with privacy, security and identity management authorities and advocates. The explosion of inter-related applications and diffusion of these technologies in an everyday, publicly accessible and smartworld context, calls for a Symposium that brings interdisciplinary, cross-sector, interagency and multinational perspectives together in a forum addressing the immediate issues and challenges of working in this space.

This Symposium will bring together key stakeholders on the 30th June 2013 in Toronto, Ontario Canada in a face-to-face forum / debate, with key speakers and representative figures from the (but not limited to) military, national security, medical, law enforcement, privacy, journalism, suppliers, academic and business leaders.
