Artificial Intelligence in Aviation Systems (Virtual)

The progress made in the fields of machine learning and AI has opened the door to a myriad of applications in ATM in particular and aviation in general. Many tasks in aviation, that can only be performed by humans today, have the potential to be performed collaboratively by hybrid human-machine teams, enabling higher performance levels. AI-powered systems are being integrated into the cockpit and into systems on the ground, which is redefining the principles of pilot/ATC interactions.
In this webinar, Marc Baumgartner from IFATCA and Carl Bollweg from ALPA-SA will share best practices on how to leverage AI in aviation systems.
