Last week, a start-up in China said next year it plans to launch taxi drones in Dubai. And it’s just as it sounds—a flying car that will carry passengers in its tiny cockpit. As far fetched as that might sound, from warfare and espionage to photography and pizza deliveries, drones have become a part of our daily lexicon.

But can drones get out of these two lanes of destruction and amusement?

On this governmentality short, I spoke with Shira Efron, policy researcher at the RAND Corporation. We talked about how drones can bring meaningful change to difficult problems in Africa, the obstacles of drones and how that industry can beat its negative reputation.

Guests:

Shira Efron, Ph.D., is an associate policy researcher at the RAND Corporation, a special advisor on Israel with RAND's Center for Middle East Public Policy, and a professor at the Pardee RAND Graduate School. You can follow her on Twitter: @ShiraEfron.
