Hosted by the AIANY Technology Committee, the talk, “Understanding the Drone: Aerial Innovation and Automated Futures,” focused on the drone as a platform whose potential impact are not only applicable to the AEC industry, but to a wide range of fields including agriculture, humanitarian aid, and transportation.
A brief history attributed the turning point in modern mainstream drones to 2013, when the first consumer drone was outfitted with a Go-Pro camera. From there possibilities snowballed, with the tool being utilized to replant mangrove forests, deliver life-saving organ transplants to rural areas, and apply fertilizer with pinpoint accuracy to crops.
