Bootcamp - Journalistic experiments of unmanned aerial vehicles: case studies from ABC Australia, BBC, Roularta-Express

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Journalists, professors, and media organisations started early to experiment with drones and
other unmanned aerial vehicles. These tools have proved to be very good allies of journalists
for an array of otherwise costly or dangerous issues: covering a demonstration or police
activity from the air or rapidly mapping a conflict or disaster zone. This session will present
three case studies of successful use of unmanned aerial vehicles for journalism.  Each speaker will talk about how their companies are approaching the use of drones, what departments are
involved in thinking about it, and show examples from the experiments.
