"For example, as the Amazon drone delivers a package to your door, the drone's camera would capture an image of your driveway where your kid's bike is laying on its side and a basketball hoop is attached to the garage. Your well-tended flower garden gets picked up by the camera as does the fact that your house could use a new coat of paint.'

" For example, the unmanned aerial vehicle may capture video data that includes brown and dying trees located near the user's home. The service provider computers may utilize image and/or video recognition techniques and software to identify that the trees require service (e.g., services that can be provided by an arborist). The service provider computers may, in response to identifying that the trees near the user's home are dying, generate and provide a recommendation to the user that includes information about arborist services or items such as fertilizers that can help the user's trees.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."
