Please join the WNG when we meet with Pramod Raheja, CEO & CoFounder of Airgility, Inc., who will discuss with us how unmanned systems (aka drones) will change how we do everything.
AI and autonomous enabled unmanned systems (i.e. drones, robots, cars, etc.) are changing everything. Indeed, today we are experiencing a technology revolution in robotics and AI. In this interactive session, Pramod will share examples of how these rapid changes are impacting our lives, currently and potentially. He will then lead a discussion about the future of unmanned systems and explore with us whether or not - or how - we will come to trust these fast emerging technologies.
