Drones represent a subgroup of machines, more precisely robots. Formerly known as remotely piloted aircrafts the devices have reach reconnaissance internationally, since a Chinese company made it easy to take aerials from the little as 1000U$ in 2011. Since them probably more than 1M units have been sold and no news, movie or other media can resist to use stills or film sequences from the flying cameras. But drones are more if the definition applies that any flying object without a human aboard piloting the device is called unmanned aircraft. If so, any A320 that reduces the cockpit staff to zero would be a drone. Also a platform that rescues people of a burning 30 story building that is avoiding cables and lifts up with thrust produced by props or turbines.
Since this picture is alive in the head of the business managers, they recognized the fascination of the engineers. Almost daily, startups develop to offer a service or technology to transform current solutions airborne. Two main question normally decide on the business and the legal success of the organizations - does the idea make sense and offer a sustainable business and will operations follow the rules. The speaker invites thinkers from science, art and humanities to dig deeper into the question, what the society needs and accepts: “Flying brains or airborne lemmings?”
Michael Wieland studied electrical engineering at Technische Hochschule Nürnberg, developed one of the first MBA programs in Germany at Steinbeis Hochschule and graduated at this university in entrepreneurship himself. He is a training expert for executives, operations and event manager, as well as private pilot.
Currently he acts as head of the Association for Unmanned Aviation UAV DACH with 211 members from industry, university and operators of drones. Before that he founded several companies, including a UAS start-up for the integration of drones into the airspace. In addition to academic development, he always acted interdisciplinary and specialized in thinking and acting in an industry- and technology-agnostic way. Initiatives and founders ask him for advice and use his network to mediate between high tech and users, lawyers, legislators, and companies.Through coaching he helps young entrepreneurs in leadership and strategy. With his flying experience in sports planes, gliders and with drones he offers managers to test themselves in stressful situations.
He is an instructor for drone pilots according to LuftVO §21d and author of the rules of unmanned aviation. As an active member he is involved in the standardization groups of DIN NL131-01-04, the working group for unmanned aircraft of the VDI, ISO TC20/SC16, as head of SG3 at ASD-STAN D5WG8, and represents the industry in JARUS SCB Group 12 "at large".

Three big realms:
- How to work with accountability of AI, in case of a mishap.
- Is "feeling" not a better notion to pursue, to gain control over non-controllable entities - like machines, which cannot be punished in a way that will have an impact in any mode that resembles 'feeling' (check out the practical try to collect data on emotions in the works of people from the mind and brain institute, dan zahavi´s subjectivity school, SME´s like minnt and Mr. Gaaschs work on AI and Phenomenology and many others.
