Look! Up in the sky! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's a drone!

In this presentation, Dr. Jeremy Gillula will explain everything you ever wanted to know about drones. How do they work? Why are they suddenly so popular? How hard is it to fly a drone? Are they dangerous? Are they used for anything besides spying on people (or in the case of the military, killing people)? He'll also cover a few drone topics that are on the more boring (but important!) side: how are drones regulated? How can I maintain my privacy in a world filled with drones? He'll leave plenty of time for Q&A and discussion, with the goal of ensuring that drones are completely de-mystified by the end of the presentation.
