A Fireside Chat about Drones, with Mike Williams www.bbc.com

The Drones Are Coming

GPS enabled drones will soon be able to deliver goods and services to your home in a hurry.  There is a great deal of excitement surrounding delivery drones as the population anticipates a shift in the way we access goods and services. Every month HITECH shines a light on the technology of our future- this month’s Fireside Chats is on Delivery Drones.

Two of the United State’s biggest technology players, Google and Amazon, are racing for their drone programs to be approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). If you’re skeptical of a future with delivery drone, the FAA estimates that by 2020, the US will have approximately 30,000 commercial drones in use.      

Governments around the world are doing their best to keep up with the evolving technology, but there is a considerable amount of technological lag- our laws simply haven’t progressed as quickly as this technology. Legislation is trying to close the gap but there isn’t a consensus on the best way to ensure the safety of the public and technological security of the drones.

Few technological breakthroughs have the visibility that delivery drones will have. It may feel like the first installment to a Jetsons lifestyle where robots are whirring around us, performing the tasks they were built to do. It will be many years before robots are able to replace our technicians, but drones will be dropping off your groceries before you know it.

    Can I simply just say what a comfort to find somebody who really understands what they're talking about online. You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people should read this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you aren't more popular since you certainly have the gift.

    Howdy terrific blog! Does running a blog similar to this require a large amount of work? I have no knowledge of programming but I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyway, should you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic but I simply wanted to ask. Many thanks!

    First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I
    had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head
    prior to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thanks!
