AI and Machine Learning in Airborne Systems – Unlocking the power without compromising safety

Billions of dollars are being invested in the development of revolutionary new civil aircraft that promise to transform transportation as we know it. Delivering on that promise means ensuring these aircraft achieve high levels of autonomy and high levels of safety. Autonomy will depend on AI and machine learning, while safety relies upon rigorous software certification and traceability. At first glance, those seem to be two opposing forces, yet they have to be reconciled.

  Please join us as experts from the Federal Aviation Administration, the UK Civil Aviation Authority and industry discuss this problem and suggest strategies that could allow innovators to capture the power of AI without compromising safety and certification.
