On the day of Chinese New Year’s Lantern Festival in Guangzhou, China (2017), people got to witness 1,000 drones lit up Guangzhou’s night sky with various beautiful colors. The drones were synched up in different patterns that got purposeful meaning to the Chinese people. According to Chinese news services, the 1,000 drones performance just set a Guinness World Record since thus far it’s a biggest number of drones in the sky at once. What is amazing is that none of these drones was crashing into each other, and so the automation of fly patterns for drones is definitely ready for prime time. Don’t you think the future will be involving with more of drones that behave as if fireworks have gone off in the dark but beautiful night sky? Perhaps, the prediction of automation will come true in regarding to putting firework business out of business? In summary, these swarm formations of drone performance might be more fashionable and future proof than firework… but by witnessing how drones got to be so automated is making us worry for our future. We may worry how futuristic AI’s automation will put hundreds if not thousands of outdated, typical human jobs and businesses out of service. If I’m not wrong, I think Chinese Lantern Festival is usually celebrated on the last day of Chinese New Year. This year is all about the roosters, and so eat more chicken!
