By Ir. Dr. Lim Eu Shawn

The drone service industry has been a crucial pivot in modernizing many industries globally from agriculture to public infrastructure management and even logistics; however has always at best fragmented in solutions, service deliver and most of all consolidating the potential of the enormous amounts of decentralized drone data collected globally.

In this session, we will cover how the concept of democratizing drone big data can enable organizations gain a quantum leap in the solutions they provide to their customers, employees, and the communities; the narratives will be oriented towards a ‘based on a true story’ concept which will also focus on the social enrichment and enabling that such a democratization exercise will enable for communities built around this concept. This includes how a democratized drone data platform can be used to build solutions for people facing social and economic challenges and even reversing the effects of rural decay by creating opportunities for drone-based gig economy.

Drone big data should be used for the betterment of communities, lives and ultimately, advancing humanity.
