Drones at Home

On May 11 & 12 (Friday and Saturday), phase II of the Drones at Home project will occur on UCSD's campus. "The conference consists of a series of panels, screenings, and open sessions that explore issues related to the domestication of drones — whether in the context of warfare, science fiction, design, cultural studies, regulatory policy, or distributed and embedded intelligence," reads the in-house event description.

Scientists, (tech-savvy) politically active artists, people in defense, engineers, science fiction authors and film makers are among the distinguished group of humans involved.

The event is organized by the [email protected], where related artwork and installations are on display. Phase I, which occurred in March, included the displaying of a Predator Drone case that was purchased on Craigslist and re-purposed by a group of artists involved with the Periscope Project. The group has taken the case to military-related sites in San Diego, and Calit2 (The California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology), on UCSD's campus, fits into that category.

None

Among the likely topics to be covered, the recently enacted FAA Modernization and Reform Act comes to mind, which will allow police and first responders to use drones domestically. Another subject will surely be the video game culture crossover with US drone strikes abroad, which have been increasing.

If San Diego ends up becoming the Dresden of WWIII, future historians may look back at what the artists and scientists of our day were doing, to get a better understanding of where we (as a culture) stood regarding these subjects. Dresden, of course, is the German city that was severely bombed at the end of WWII, killing thousands of civilians.

There will be free wine at the event Friday, which may help you digest some of the intense topics that may come up.
