Data, Drones and Death

It is talks like these that I love DomCode for. Go beyond the standard programming talks and look at other topics that are still tech-related. I quite liked this talk and it pushed me to think about not just technology but also the ethics of new technology. Thank you.
I didn't fully read the description up front. I hate war and killing, but it happens so good people want to share about it.
It kept me thinking the rest of the day about what is going on in this world.
Maybe these drones can be used for good instead of bad, nice insights.
Unlike last year's (awesome) bee talk, I found less connection to tech in this talk, even though of course drones are controlled via software. I fear I might be biased a bit against this talk due to the speaker being very quiet, in a room that seems to dampen all noise, meaning I had to work very hard to follow all the sentences, and was mentally exhausted at the end.
The speaker was also extremely optimistic about stopping killing-by-drone. I feel with countries who typically don't play by the rules like the US already doing it for 20-odd years that there's no turning back.
