Police departments in CA & GA have started using drones for tracking people + vehicles. Does this ethically concern you?
I don't like. I don't have a huge problem with it. I think at the end of the day, you know, if a police agency is gonna have a helicopter and airplane and you know a patrol car, you know, at the end of the day, that's that's kind of a funding question of how much funding are they giving for all these kind of bells and whistles and toys to track people in vehicles? But I think at the simplest level, this is the direction we're going. It's It's the future drones doing autonomous activity on tracking. Hopefully, you know, uh, constitutionally appropriate targets. Um, then then, yeah, I mean, it makes sense. And if that's cheaper and it actually allows us to decrease potentially overspending, you know, for airplanes and helicopters and whatnot that accomplish the same goal like that's great, that's that's a better efficiency using technology across the entire society spectrum. So I think it's a future, regardless of whether my ethics approve it or not. But of course, I think the concern here is that if the Police Department, for example, can afford one helicopter and they use that for O. J. Simpson, you know style tracking on the freeway. Okay, I get that. But if you take that budget lets you break that down and taken by 1000 mini drones. And those are all active every day, all day. Tracking targets throughout the city starts to kind of switch into, like, I don't know if that's that's quite appropriate either. So, um, it's sort of like How do we use this technology and how do we deploy it toe cut cost and make things more efficient that I'm excited about deploying it more broadly, and Mawr firm or, you know, minor crimes feels that's where the epic start toe pop up for me.
