TEDx Talk Humanitarian Drones
The word “Humanitarian Drones” has become synonymous with autonomous killing machine. But the technology itself isn’t inherently evil—in fact, Humanitarian Drones might be the best solution to some of the world’s biggest problems.
recently TEDx talks you-tube videos have many presentations of Humanitarian related innovations with Humanitarian Drone technology.
TEDx Talks like these will help the word with humanitarian applications of aerial robotics delivery systems into time consuming, difficult areas to traverse regions throughout the world.
Over the past 12 years, Patrick has worked in the Sudan, Somalia, Uganda, Liberia, Philippines, Kyrgyzstan, Nepal, Timor-Leste, Western Sahara, Haiti, Vanuatu and elsewhere.
Dr. Patrick Meier, on a wide range of innovative Humanitarian Drone projects with multiple international organizations including the United Nations and with the World Banking system.
In 2015, he spearheaded the Bank’s post-disaster UAV Humanitarian Drone mission in response to a Category 5 Cyclone in the Pacific.
He was subsequently invited by the UN to coordinate UAV Humanitarian Drone teams responding to the Nepal Earthquakes.
He later conducted a joint disaster recovery UAV Humanitarian Drone Mission in Nepal to support rebuilding and preparedness efforts.
Patrick is the Executive Director of WeRobotics and the founder of the Humanitarian UAV Network (UAViators).
His influential and widely-read blog iRevolutions has received over 1.7 million hits.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Matthew Sweeny describes how he is building a future where seeing a Humanitarian Drones in the air will be as common as seeing an ambulance on the road.
CEO of Flirtey, the world’s leading with Humanitarian Drones delivery service.
Flirtey is a startup reinventing the Humanitarian Drones as a delivery process for humanitarian reasons, online retail, and food delivery industries – with a mission to save lives and change lifestyles.
Originally from Australia, Sweeny was the first in his family to attend college where he received a degree in international relations and philosophy from the University of Sydney.
While studying economics on a scholarship in China, Sweeny began developing a technology to deliver goods faster, more cost effectively and with the ultimate customer experience.
The first delivery Humanitarian Drones were built in his dorm room.
After moving Flirtey to the United States, Sweeny received his education from Y Combinator (YC S15) funding startup.
Flirtey has worked with NASA and top universities to create the technology and logistics systems for a mass-market Humanitarian Drones for a delivery network.
Mr.Matthew Sweeny, has a record number of accomplishments and historic firsts in the drone delivery space.
Engineer Samir Hayat explains how she is redesigning Humanitarian Drones to perform tasks such as search, and rescue.
Mrs. Samir Hayat , explores how this technology could one day revolutionize humanitarian aid work.
“Samira Hayat deeply believes that technology is the solution to many global problems.
Her engineering work at the University of Klagenfurt is redefining the role of Humanitarian Drones play in society.
“When I was growing up in Pakistan, all I knew about Humanitarian Drones is that they are killing machines,” Hayat said.
“I did not know much about what they could do for helping humanity.”
Hayat’s is currently creating software and technology that will enables groups of Humanitarian Drones to work together as a single unit.
She hopes that her work will eventually have applications to larger global issues, such as unmanned search and rescue missions, urgent medical deliveries, and construction in remote areas.”
Public discussion of Humanitarian Drones in the media is largely negative and fear-based.
But is there a way for us to embrace this technology safely?
Can Humanitarian Drones help first responders save lives?
