Future 2020 Technology Series: The Drone Next Door

There was a time when we all viewed drones as a futuristic technology. Then we started to hear about how Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) were being used abroad in combat and gathering intelligence. Today in the U.S., the technology has advanced to the point that all you need to purchase an UAV is an Internet connection and a credit card. Fulfillment and delivery business models are starting to talk about delivery packages to your doorstep using drones. In fact, in your neighborhood, and likely on your street, someone has a drone they can fly two miles into the sky... with a camera.

Please join us on October 28th for an insightful discussion about UAVs. Industry experts will share the trends on a new industry, the research that is being conducted, the business models that are scaling, the policies and regulations that are becoming overwhelmed.

Panelists will address the following questions:

  • How will this impact society moving forward?
  • What are the pros and cons of this technology innovation and the breakthroughs we are experiencing?
  • Who is designing the rules of the new road?
  • What are the benefits you will enjoy?
  • What about Safety? Privacy?
  • What are the like B2C, B2G and B2B use cases?

Panelists:

Jeff Imel, Founder, Air Robotics Inc.
Christopher Vo, Roboticist, George Mason University

Sponsors:

Exhibit Sponsor: Verizon
Media Partner: Capital Business
Location Sponsor: Sprint

Destination Innovation

Destination Innovation 2014 featured a competition of 16 of the region's innovators who discussed their innovative technology, including why it is disruptive and how it solves a real-world problem. The companies, divided into social, commerce, government and security categories, were selected by online votes submitted during a competition on the Capital Business website. After listening to two minute pitches from each of the innovators, attendees at the event voted for one company in each category and the top two companies from each category moved on to the final round of the program.

The final round consisted of a head-to-head competition between the remaining two companies in each category. A panel of experts asked the competing companies questions about their innovations, markets and business strategies. The winner in each category - LynxFit by Byte an Atom Research (Social), Homesnap (Commerce), LMI (Government), and Key Cybersecurity (Security) - was decided by the expert panel.

The event also featured keynote remarks from SocialRadar's Michael Chasen and former HP CEO Carly Fiorina.
