The golden age of privacy is over: But don't blame drones

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Look! In the sky! Black helicopters! No... It's drones! The difference, of course, is that the black helicopters beloved of conspiracy theorists do not exist, while drones will soon be coming to an airspace near you. The Federal Aviation Administration, in fact, is under congressional mandate to establish the rules for operating drones in domestic airspace, and they're already being used as part of U.S. Border security technology systems. Meanwhile, smaller drones such as quadrotors, many already fitted out with cameras, are widely available on Amazon and elsewhere.
