Drones the Podcast - 03: PRIVACY, PLEASE!
This episode will take a look at drones and privacy. It is a big issue because drones are operating in close proximity with humans.
Topic #1: Drones flying into, over personal property
Drone crash lands in a guys back yard. Freaks him out, not mad but can't find owner.
Reminds of famous drone slayer case, where a guy a Kentucky man shot down a drone flying over his property where his daughter was sunbathing. Claim of drone pilot dismissed from federal court in March.

Topic #2: Addressing privacy concerns
H.R.2139 - To amend the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 proposed
“What happens if there are drones that are gathering, through facial recognition,
taking a picture of every license plate at a health clinic and then selling that information to an insurance company
FAA also a a committee with major leaders in the drone industry to talk about privacy
Best Practices put out by the Obama administration https://www.ntia.doc.gov/files/ntia/publications/uas_privacy_best_practices_6-21-16.pdf
Topic #3: Smart drones that recognize your gestures? And other tec
Technology will change privacy issues with facial recognition and machine learning are drones becoming a platform that will invade our privacy. Small sensors, Stingray, FLIR, LIDAR, etc
But this can also go the other way, researchers at Georgia Tech are working on a drone that recognizes gestures and will back off if signaled to do so. They are teaching it to be aware of human reaction and act appropriately.
It is also a mini-blip format and could be used in stores!
