IREX Tech Deep Dive

IREX Tech Deep Dive


Please RSVP now to join the next IREX Tech Deep Dive to be held on the 22nd of Jan 2014 where we’ll examine the current and potential role of drones in development with the aim of answering questions like:

  • What are the current and near future capacities of UAVs?
  • How can we use these functionalities in development?
  • What are the issues and ethics involved with UAVs?

To help us navigate UAV usage, we’ll have five thought leaders sharing their knowledge and opinions:

  1. Jessica Leber, Fast Company, Co.Exist
  2. Matthew Schroyer, Professional Society of Drone Journalists
  3. Tom Snitch, University of Maryland’s Institute for Advanced Computer Studies
  4. Paola Santana, Matternet
  5. Timothy Reuter, Drone User Group Network

Please RSVP now to join this active, practical event. We’ll have an overview of the state of UAV technology and usage, a lively brainstorming on potential projects, and small teams creating drone project designs and a framework to use with future drone deployments in development. We will even have a drones hands-on for those wanting to test out their piloting skills. You’ll go from talk to action in just one morning!
