FTC Fall Technology Series: Drones
Constitution Center, 400 7th Street SW, Washington, DC
Oct 13, 2016

Americans are increasingly familiar with drones, also known as unmanned aerial systems. These devices have become one of consumers’ most popular technology purchases; some estimate nearly one million new drones will be purchased in 2016. Many consumer drones feature high-definition cameras, GPS, and the ability to fly autonomously. Commercially available drones are even more sophisticated, and are increasingly used for a variety of activities, including monitoring and inspection, news reporting, search and rescue of missing persons, and delivery of commercial packages or medicine to rural areas. While drones may generate significant economic benefits, the potential for information collection raises the prospect of consumer harms including invasion of privacy, trespass, and harassment. This Federal Trade Commission (FTC) seminar will explore the following questions related to commercial uses of drones:

  • What are the uses and benefits of drones for consumers today? Where is drone technology headed?
  • What are the unique privacy and security concerns associated with drone technologies and the data collected from them?
  • How are these concerns currently being addressed by businesses, self-regulatory efforts, and foreign regulators?
  • Is there a need for further guidance?
Time: 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. (EDT)
