Drones: The next advancement in human innovation | Shawn Muehler | TEDxFargo

Shawn Muehler has been fascinated by aviation since before starting middle school. He turned his love of flying into a successful military career which led to his current role as CEO of Botlink, a drone startup here in Fargo. He is working to advance the unmanned aerial vehicle industry through innovative software and hardware, highlighted in this talk

Shawn is the COO of drone software company, Botlink. He is an officer in the U.S. Air Force, has been serving our country and flying both manned and unmanned aircraft for over a decade. His love of flying model aircraft and Cessnas in his youth transpired into flying Learjets and military drones as a profession, and Shawn’s extensive aviation and technology background is the inspiration for Botlink.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

    Really? Advancement in human innovation?

    An UAV is the result of the combination of several fields from computing to the material sciences, I wouldn’t really call an inevitable product of advancements in other fields an advancement in human "innovation", it is expected.

    Perhaps a more suitable application of the title is to fields of which would change relatively many things they touch, you can include computing in that Moore’s Law practically guarantees a revolution.
