Drones offer businesses and law enforcement extraordinary efficiency and life-saving benefits, but they also present unique safety and privacy challenges for policymakers.

She will explain the current lively debate in our country -- "drone fever" -- about the domestic use of drones for everything from filmmaking to journalism to package delivery to industrial and business security. Lisa believes the key to balancing these opportunities and challenges is a true integration of policy and innovation, known as "Polivation:" Policymakers must promote innovation, and innovators must work hand in hand with policymakers. In this timely talk, Lisa will teach us how our country can make good use of new technologies, including drones, in a way that wins the public's trust and serves its interests.
