Zipline: The future of healthcare logistics
About this talk: How can drones revolutionize healthcare in rural Rwanda and potentially beyond? Partnering across disciplines, UPS has helped create the world’s first drone-based medical delivery system, transporting emergency medical supplies to remote villages in Rwanda. On track to hopefully save thousands of lives a year, this scalable system could conceivably help transform how we deliver medical resources in the future as populations outgrow aging infrastructure.
About this event

In the third year of partnership, TED@UPS 2017 speakers asked: “What if?” They unveiled the potential of global interconnectivity, and, ultimately, what it means to evolve in a world spinning ever faster.
