It was impossible this year to open a newspaper or watch the news without seeing them: Drones. The unmanned airplanes are no longer only deployed by the US Army in Pakistan to ‘silently kill’ but are appearing in cities around the world as they did with the London olympics.
What does the rise of drones mean for the citizens of cities? What are the moral implications of robot warfare? And what applications can designers, companies and governments find for the wellfare of the future?
We will talk about these questions at Visible Cities #12, Dawn of the Drones and invite you to be part of our discussion.
With Lars Anderson, Ruben Pater, Juha van ‘t Zelfde, Boris van Hoytema and others.
