Upcoming "Big Data" Seminar on August 15

I'll be speaking at a Big Data seminar in Indianapolis hosted by the Indiana Ag Law Foundation on August 15, 2014.  My topic will be "The Legal Aspects of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)."  I will be covering a number of legal issues surrounding the entrance of  UAVs (or "drones") into agricultural airspace, including Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations for UAVs, the law of trespass and privacy, and constitutional concerns when government agencies use UAVs for surveillance.

The seminar will cover various other topics concerning Big Data in agriculture.  Matt Erickson, American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF), will provide an overview of UAV issues and AFBF's data privacy policy. Scott Beck, Vice President of Beck's Superior Hybrids, will discuss farm data privacy together with representatives from The Climate Corporation and DuPont Pioneer.
