The Edge of Drone Warfare | James Rogers | TEDxOdense

James is a British assistant professor of War Studies at SDU in Odense and a visiting fellow at Yale University. His research focuses on drone warfare, contemporary security policy, and the history of warfare.

Currently, James is focusing his attention on the future of conflict, and how drones are being used maliciously by terrorist groups and non-state organizations for assassinations, surveillance, missile drops, spying, and to disrupt vulnerable domestic targets.

At TEDxOdense, James will tell us more about rogue drones. He will start by telling us how they impact air traffic, before exploring the darker side of this modern-day technology. The question is not IF a drone will ever hit a plane or helicopter—this has already happened—it is WHEN this will happen again, and what the fatal consequences may be.

As James himself puts it: “Humanity’s most heinous atrocities have been carried out using tools made with the best intentions. Small ‘toy’ drones have the potential to cause large scale chaos and disruption.”

At TEDxOdense 2019, Dr. James Rogers explores this uncharted landscape and explains how drones might impact our future. James is a British assistant professor of War Studies at SDU in Odense and a visiting fellow at Yale University. His research focuses on drone warfare, contemporary security policy, and the history of warfare. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

    Hoped for so much more than well-aired headline stories. Disappointing.

    Future warfare is going to fight with guys in their basement

    Ok presentation.
    4:24 which make and model drone can be outside an aeroplane windows as its landing?
    This interesting comment brings the whole video into question.
    Looks like a TV reporter wrote the script.
    Cheers mike

    He starts with Gatwick airport but there has never been any proof of a drone flying there. No footage whatsoever and other information came up that the control tower was having technical issues while in the middle of a merger with another company. So there is theories that it was all staged to hide their own deficiencies.

    Very informing and a prospective that I had not thought about. His stories provided an extreme visual of things that can and will go wrong.

    Predictive programming they have to tell you before they do it to you

    The government controls the drones and we are the enemy

    Very annoying presentation style.

    For Swarms Of Retail Type Drones, Use "Old West" Type Windmills
    Add Cheap Proximity Radar (Cop’s Radar Gun)
    Add Homemade Rockets (Scrap Metal/Gravel For Shrapnel)
    You Then Have A FLAK TOWER (Powered By The Wind)

    I like that action of the japanese eco activist.

    Brilliant evaluation and very engaging! Really opened my eyes to the frightening potential of drones

  13. Mr Cat's Wrestling on May 2, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    Great job James Rodgers. You killed it!

  14. 19missi59 on May 2, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    our governments are the real terrorists and have done, are doing and will continue to do more killing than anyone else

    This story becomes so convoluted over time, and combines so many unrelated incidences, I’m trying to figure out what he’s really selling…
