Insurance in the age of drones - The technologist

Robots are a technology developing at pace. We are living at a time when a confluence of technical advances – battery and power provision, computational ability and sensors – are allowing the rapid advance of robotics. Moreover, through continual self-optimisation, robots are able to become self-referential, and learn adaptively from their surroundings. Within a well-developed systems architecture, many robots can work collectively with each other on a common task. This collaboration is not centrally co-ordinated, it is the product of distributed autonomous intelligence.

Nonetheless, US authorities are doing their best to keep up with drones, developing an approach to a fully integrated airspace and the creation of highways in the sky. Drone regulation is being drafted in an environment that remains pro-innovation, going all the way up to the White House.

Insurance in the age of drones - The hacker

Drones have the potential to do great good in society. Equally, in the wrong hands, they have significant potential to cause harm. Drones have already been used in illegal surveillance, both at an individual and an industrial level. They can be used in smuggling, and there have already been several cases to drugs being shipped into jails. They can be used in direct physical attacks, they can be used to intercept wireless signals and hack. There is a burgeoning industry developing in physically stopping rogue drones, from using birds of prey to flying nets.

Insurance in the age of drones - The re/insurers

Until there is specific coverage lines for drones available, the best advice has to be 'talk to your insurance agent'. The damage a drone can cause could be significant. No one, hobbyist, or particularly commercial operator, should fly a drone without feeling very sure of their insurance cover.
