“I suspect AI (by which I mean machine sensing and learning) will impact aviation in many ways from passenger experience to flight operations. Personally, I would like to see improvements in the experience of airport security. When it comes to flight safety, we are, for the most part, willing to give up quite a bit of privacy. I would like to see more intelligent ways for our personal data to be used to increase security while making the security procedures themselves less noticeable.
I also anticipate AI will further the automation of flights and flight operations. Advances in machine vision (currently applied in the automotive industry) will also find distinct applications on aircraft. In highly-structured environments such as airports and the airspace, machine vision can increase safety and efficiency. Taxiing and ground operations are ripe for disruption through these capabilities.”
