The Medical Drone Delivery Pilot

The Medical Drone Delivery Pilot

One of the world’s first drone delivery services is all the way in rural Rwanda, where 27 year-old Abdoul Salam Nizeyimana earns a living by launching and retrieving self-flying planes. Nizeyimana was drawn to not only the technology of his employer Zipline but also its mission: to deliver blood to remote hospitals, helping doctors save their patients’ lives. Like many in Rwanda, Nizeyimana survived a harrowing tragedy to get to where he is today.

This is the third episode of “Next Jobs,” a series about careers of the future hosted by Bloomberg Technology’s Aki Ito.

    Don’t underestimate Rwanda it has the highest economic growth in the whole world .

  3. Amazing World on August 14, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    Zipline Drone, the innovator of this delivery system is a US venture-backed startup. It’s misleading since the company with it’s noble use cases of its product just happens to use Rwanda as a guinea pig pilot project to go ‘live’. Rwanda govt is just more open as a test pilot since it has less aviation rules to get by. But yes, the technology were developed, manufactured and refined in the Silicon Valley largely by veteran roboticists, a Stanford PhD and a MIT grad.

  6. Amar on August 14, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    I thought they were designed by him, the title is a bit misleading. But nonetheless a great project, I hope we see these drones all over the world.

    Will the paternalistic Western media ever say anything about RWANDA, without mentioning the "genocide", while leaving out the French and the Belgians behind it?

    800’000 people died in this country from a genocide, 20 years later it is prospering 7-fold.

    I work with a fellow from Rawanda.. maybe twice a month he suffers flashbacks.. never mind the details, let me just say, he goes back every year to honor his, mother. Grandma, Grandpa, Father, all his aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.. he is the last of his blood line … he’s a true blessing to be around…

    There is no need to pretend that lost jobs will be matched by new ones. The future economy will not be about employment. It will be about on demand products and services. Don’t expect traditional jobs to remain available no matter what you know how to do. Think consult/contractor. If you have knowledge you can sell or a skill you can apply, you’ll be able to sell it on demand and when the job is done, you plot for your next project or take a break from working altogether. Of course, don’t stay away too long. That will count against you, unless you plan carefully and build an online reputation that puts you in demand (as a problem solver/creator).
