    AI (artificial intelligence) is powering many industries. Case in point: infrastructure inspections. A combination of AI and drones can provide visual inspections for transmission and distribution power lines for regional utility customers. Consider the example of DRIFT ENTERPRISE Ltd., which is a full-service commercial drone company in the Cayman Islands with service extension to Jamaica and other Caribbean territories. The company recently began using AI technology from Buzz Solutions. Here is how this can help: Provide a more efficient and accurate way to detect and predict grid anomalies. Ensure the resilience of the energy grid. Minimize the amount of blackouts. Looking to the future, we can anticipate the global AI in drones market to reach $84 billion by 2030, with an annual growth rate of more than 28.5%, according to RationalStat. We will continue to see the rise of AI and drones, working together to provide greater capabilities to utilities, helping to keep the grid up and running for…

    Sensor technology continues to advance for schools to make them more secure. Consider the case of Metrasens, which has developed advanced detection systems for greater safety in schools. The sensor technology can identify potential threats, including concealed weapons. The system can be used both indoors and outdoors, is portable, flexible, battery powered, weather resistance, and has zonal indication. Moore Public Schools, which is the fourth largest public school system in the state, is one example of a district that has adopted such technology. Building on a successful pilot of Metrasens Ultra detectors in the previous academic year, Moore Public Schools officially integrated them at the start of the 2023-2024 school year. Here is how this is helping in this school district: Provide reliability and durability with the detectors. Ensure a secure environment for extracurricular events at 35 campus sites and various large venues. Heighten safety measures across the district. While this is only one example, sensor technology can help in myriad ways. We will continue to see the use of it grow in our schools, cities, and…
