Remote control aircraft have been around for more 80 years, enabling mainstream hobbyists and professionals to enjoy capturing fantastic perspectives of world below. What does the future hold? This panel will discuss the future of drones beyond "remote control" --- perhaps a future where our packages are delivered by drones; or where huge swarms of drones light up and dance in unison for our entertainment; or where drones have become our flying robotic companions. Panelists will discuss the opportunities and limitations in robotics, artificial intelligence, and our society that are shaping this future.
