Artificial Intelligence and Aviation

Can we expect Artificial Intelligence – heralded by just about everyone as the next great technology leap forward - to have a role in air traffic management? 

But how can we look beyond the hype and understand what this technology could really do for aviation? When is it right for AI to play a role in a safety critical industry and how could it impact human decision making? Will we ever really see AI managing live air traffic in our skies and if so, what are the unseen risks? 

In this month’s Altitude we’re joined by a panel to help us navigate this technological and moral maze. 

We discuss Project Bluebird, with its aim of building a digital twin of UK airspace. We also investigate how AI and automation are already starting to transform airport traffic management, and we unpick where AI could be used to improve performance and safety.
