Drones : The Brilliant, the Bad and the Beautiful Paperback / softback
by Andy Miah
Part of the SocietyNow series
Against the backdrop of an increasingly dynamic world driven by rapid digital innovation and technological advances, drones are becoming prolific within society. Andy Miah delivers in this book a comprehensive analysis of the wide-reaching applications of drones, as well as a critical interrogation of the social, cultural, and moral issues that they provoke.
He asks: are drones indicative of a world in which humanity is rapidly losing control of technology? Or do drones simply reveal the next iteration in human/machine symbiosis?
Delving into philosophical discussions about the implications of drone technology, this book also shines a light on the real-world applications, complications and innovative potential which might be posed by a world in which drones are commonplace in our daily lives.
