Teaching Drones to Dance on Their Own
Drones are thinking on their own, using camera vision and AI to process their environment and intelligently navigate precarious motions. They are training themselves to independently conduct rescue missions in disaster zones, safely navigate the streets of busy pedestrian cities, and even to dance in response to musical patterns - and they are learning to do it in synchronization with each other. Hear from renowned researchers Davide Scaramuzza (University of Zurich, Robotics and Perception) and Angela Schoellig (Director of the Center for Aerial Robotics Research and Education at the University of Toronto) how drone swarms are getting even smarter than you think and see what an AI-controlled drone swarm can accomplish that would be impossible with a drone driven by a single human operator

- How are drones using AI to mimic human movement in new, unmapped, and crowded environments?
- What new applications are possible when drones learn to move and navigate on their own using camera vision?
- As we teach and empower drones to act independently, how are they, in return, teaching and empowering us?
