Expert's answer

Customers who do not want to wait in line or engage face-to-face with a cashier have more alternatives to self-checkout. Cultured beef takes up a lot less space, consumes a lot less water, and emits fewer pollutants (Leng, 2017). In addition, traditional beef farming produces many greenhouse gases, including methane, carbon dioxide, and nitrous oxide, all of which contribute to global warming. Lab-grown beef has the potential to cut these emissions dramatically.  Drones can assist law enforcement. Searching for lost children, providing tactical surveillance and suspect tracking, assisting in accident investigations, and monitoring huge crowds are possible uses for UAS.
