DARC, the drones and aerial robotics conference in NY continues today with great speakers and a variety of workshops and panels getting to the nitty gritty of how we work with, regulate and understand aerial robots. The sessions range from “Do androids dream of electric sheep” where Haraway and Baudrillard references abound, to the “How to build a hobby drone” sessions, to some deep diving into regulatory frameworks now and forthcoming.

My favorite things so far include the way that the protestors yesterday were brought into the conference and included in the discussion, the inclusion of philosophical, cultural and ethical perspectives on technology, and of course, the new technologies and the depth experience in the room.

The afterDARC live drone show on Friday night was great, with a keynote from Henri Seydoux from Parrot and demos from Sensefly, Team Black Sheep, Nodecopter, UC Berkeley Biomimetic Millisys Lab, the RoboBees project, Eirik Solheim from Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation, Sergei Lupashin from ETH Zurich and Heather Knight with Ginger from Carnegie Mellon.

Coming up today – many more sessions and workshops including my presentation on gender and hackerspaces and the final keynote from Missy Cummings. Sunday is drone hacking day.

Program: DARC It’s not being live streamed today but recordings will be published later.
