As part of the WebSummit In Dublin, Ireland, the Drone and Data Conference invited 50 individuals from around the world to join them in Achill after the Web Summit.  The group was made up of startup investors from Silicon Valley, Ireland and Israel, and the UK. CEOs of well known and up and coming technology companies, as well as leaders from the technology and government in Ireland, were also attending. 

The conference started out in Castlebar and an incredibly and beautiful castle. 

The group of presenters was a very impressive one and they all had very interesting information. Some were very technical and very future oriented - and it is now clear to me that there are some incredible ideas out there and a lot of people working hard on making these ideas reality. We do live in exciting times. 

The list of presenters included:

Mr. Christian Sanz, C.E.O., Skycatch
Mapping the World with Robots

Mr. JoeBen Bevirt, C.E.O., Joby Aviation.
Developments in Vertical Take Off & Landing Personal Aircraft

Jay Bregman, CEO of Hailo
Drone Regulation - How the private sector can help

Tony Harkin, Irish Aviation Authority
Ireland’s approach to Drone Technology

Mr. John Ging, Eirgrid and Eddie Kilbane, Dataplex
Big Power and Big Data - Data Centres in Ireland

Edgars Rozentals  
Follow Me Technology

Romeo Durscher, Product Evangelist, DJI Drones
The future of aerial photography
I had decided to make my presentation about the future of aerial photography a fun one with first a look back in time. I called it: 

"Has the Future of the Jetsons Finally Arrived? A Brave New World of Aerial Photography" 
One of the personal highlights for me was right before the presentations started. The presenters were all taken into the castle's library. There we waited for a few minutes until the Prime Minister of Ireland, Enda Kenny, entered and started to have a very lively discussion about the integration of this technology in Ireland. It was a very fascinating discussion and clearly the Prime Minister had a lot of knowledge about the technology and its benefits. I was introduced to the Prime Minister as not only one of the top aerial photographers, but also as a very strong educator in STEM. It was a real honor to talk to the Prime Minister - and I could not resist showing him a picture of Ireland from Space... luckily Astro Reid had just sent me one. He loved it. 
As part of my attendance and presentation I was not only interviewed for the Irish Newspaper SiliconRepublic, but also for the Irish TV station. It truly was a fantastic event. Click here to read the Siliconrepublic article
