Speaking about drones at KLU Thinks Big event

For a second year, KLU students have organised an event at which six volunteers from the faculty and student body each get a short time to discuss an issue about which they feel strongly. I contributed a session on why I do not believe that drones are going to become widely used as a mode of parcel delivery in urban areas.

Details of the event can be found here.
