Cameron is the CEO and co-founder of Draganfly Inc. (NASDAQ: DPRO; CSE: DPRO, FSE: 3U8), an AI software developer and the oldest operating commercial drone company in the world. Cameron has co-founded multiple groundbreaking companies, including the original cloud computing company, ASP, the first video cameras in space on the outside of the International Space Station, and more.

There was a car accident. Search parties couldn’t find the individual. They then called the federal police to bring in a drone and a thermal camera on it. Within 25 minutes, they had found the subject and were able to stabilize them and save the life. It’s the first drone that was credited with saving a life. Today, that drone sits in the Smithsonian.

Organically, if we look out hundreds of years from now, we will have parts of our brains that will be able to be used because we’ll be able to conceptualize and those neuropaths will be developing. Somebody from 400 years ago can’t think about flight. It just doesn’t exist. It’s not in the realm of possibility. That has been the limiting factor, and the incredibly fun challenge of humans is to live beyond that possibility. It only occurs when new neuropaths start to develop, new waves of possibility being able to come into our consciousness. That’s where I think AI’s biggest impact on humans will be.

From a cost perspective, being able to take humans out of the equation, running drones in general or equipment in general is a lot less expensive than the cost of having humans.
