At DARC 2013, Daniel Suarez explored the consequences of lethal autonomy. Find the video of his keynote here.
We asked Daniel about what surprised him most about DARC. “I found Stuart Banner’s tour through the history of aviation law — and how it might presage the trajectory of drone regulation— very fascinating.” We’ll publish Stuart’s talk in the coming days—don’t forget to follow @droneconference on Twitter!
