Unmanned Government: The Autonomous Future

Imagine a future where a driverless street sweeper cleans your street or a small drone delivers your mail. For the last decade, discussions about the government use of autonomous or remotely operated technologies have focused on their military applications. However, as government agencies face fiscal constraints and the demand for public services continues to rise, governments can harness technologies such as drones and driverless vehicles to better serve citizens. Our conversation will focus on the applications of these technologies in the US federal government. We’ll talk about how the US government will shape the autonomous vehicle marketplace and what it means for entrepreneurs and technologists. We’ll also discuss safety and privacy concerns, as well as the workforce impacts of these technologies. Attendees will leave the conversation with an understanding of the best ways that the public sector can harness autonomous technologies for social good.
