A recent PWC report highlighted that increased drone adoption across the economy could increase UK GDP by &pound;42 billion (or 2%) by 2030.</p> <p>The market for drones is rapidly developing with new user cases emerging all the time. Of all the various user cases, perhaps the easiest one to make and win public support for is emergency services using drone technology to save lives and improve public safety.</p> <p>Across the blue lights agencies there are already a handful of examples of drone use for public safety. So the real issue is how UK emergency services can take drone use from small pockets of use by a few agencies, to becoming a regular feature in incident response, making drones business as usual for blue-lights services.</p> <p>This event is designed to try and bridge that gap, allowing industry and end-users the chance to share best practice and lessons about what works. We will explore what made successful projects work, barriers to adoption (cost, policy, skills) what lessons were learned along the way, and how operational staff can drive the drone agenda within their organisation.</p> <p>As well as addressing the technology and the operational case, we will look at how to make the business case, where drones responsibility sits in different agencies, and the different requirements and issues for rural and urban use. Crucially, speakers will explore what industry can do to help blue lights agencies make the case for drones.</p> <p><strong><span style="font-size: 14px;">Agenda:</span></strong></p> <p><strong>10:00 - 10:20 Registration and networking</strong></p> <p><strong>10:20 - 10:30 Scene setting and introductions </strong>- Henry Rex, techUK</p> <p><strong>10:30 - 10:45&nbsp;Keynote presentation - The drone opportunity for emergency services</strong>&nbsp;-&nbsp;Tingting He, DJI</p> <p><strong>10:45&nbsp;- 11:45</strong>&nbsp;<strong>Panel -&nbsp;The operational case for drones and best practice</strong></p> <p>This panel will discuss the how and why drones are and will be a vital tool for law enforcement, emergency services and first responders.

It will consider whether the practical action that has been taken is enough and discuss what more may be needed. It will assess whether the current public engagement on ethical issues is being successful and ask whether additional ethical foresight and action may be needed to identify the public’s real ethical concerns. The Summit will also showcase the progress being made by industry to develop simple tools and solutions businesses need to embed ethical decision making within organisations.</p> <p>The Summit will again be organised by techUK in partnership with the Royal Statistical Society, Wellcome Trust, Royal Society, British Academy, University of Oxford Data Ethics Lab, Open Data Institute, The Alan Turing Institute and the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence and The Nuffield Foundation’s Ada Lovelace Institute.</p> <p>Through keynote presentations and panel discussions the Summit aims to bring together a number of current conversations and highlight multi-stakeholder efforts happening in the UK, Europe and globally.

Practical across many specific, smaller-scale use cases, it is yet to be accomplished on a scale required to make &ldquo;Britwin&rdquo; a reality.</p> <p>That&rsquo;s why techUK is bringing together public and private sector, policy makers, decision makers and innovators to forge an understanding of just what might be involved in making the national digital twin a reality, and how the tech sector can help to deliver this ambition, taking it beyond the pilot stage.</p> <p>The day&rsquo;s agenda is as follows:</p> <p><strong>09:30-10:00&nbsp;Registration</strong>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>10:00-10:15&nbsp;Welcome</strong></p> <p><strong>10:15-11:15&nbsp;Session One: Current state of play &ndash; what exists? </strong></p> <p>Hear from those who develop and use digital twins for various physical infrastructure assets as they share their experiences of real world applications and use cases. This session will lay the foundation for understanding what a digital twin is, and how it applies data and digital technologies to provide real-time insights that can assist in planning, predicting and understanding various types of infrastructure assets.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>11:15-11:35&nbsp;COFFEE BREAK</strong></p> <p><strong>11:35-13:00&nbsp;Session Two: A Vision for Brit-twin</strong></p> <p>This session will combine public and private sector perspectives and approaches to outline what digital twin of Britain could and should involve, as well as identifying their priorities and challenges for infrastructure owners that a digital twin may be useful for.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>13:00-14:00&nbsp;LUNCH &amp;&nbsp;DEMOS</strong></p> <p><strong>14:00-15:15&nbsp;Session Three: Delivering a National Digital Twin in 2019?&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>The final session of the day will be centred around a panel discussion on how to deliver a national Digital Twin in 2019. Industry representatives, with first-hand experience of buying and selling digital twin technology, will share their thoughts on the necessary next steps to make a National Digital Twin a reality.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>15:15-16:00&nbsp;Event Wrap-up &amp; Networking</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:Jessica.Russell@techuk.org">Jessica.Russell@techuk.org</a>Contact: <a href="mailto:katherine.mayes@techuk.org">katherine.mayes@techuk.org</a>
