Biren Gandhi
Distinguished Strategist, Cisco Corporate Strategy Office
Drones had enjoyed numerous venture investments and attention over the last couple of years. However, recently we see an industry-wide slowdown in the commercial drone ecosystem. Drones or UAVs went from an "innovation trigger" category to "trough of disillusionment" segment on the Gartner Hype Cycle curve in just one year's timeframe. Amid the uncertainty surrounding regulatory approvals, privacy, misuses, traffic control systems, etc. and the fear of job losses resulting from extreme automation, where do we see the future of commercial drone ecosystem? Who is going to conquer of the drone marketplace? What are the elements of success in an era of robotics, AI, IoT, the blockchain, AR/VR, etc. technologies and the overarching digital transformation? Let's discover it together.
