Jeremy Crampton on the uses of drones.
How do drones use computational methods such as algorithms to govern your life? Here are ten ways.
Many people think (non-military) drones are only used by hobbyists, and then only to fly small Go-Pro cameras around.
This is mistaken.
Following is a partial listing of other ways drones perform algorithmic calculations on people. All of these are already here. The lesson is not that drones can do this and it’s about drones; rather the lesson is that drones are being used in algorithmic governance more generally.
These are examples from my files. Mostly these are non-military/intelligence usages but that distinction is not entirely tenable given the streams of expertise and knowledge between military and non-military drone research.
