The future of tourism: virtual reality, robot helpers, and space
JERUSALEM, Israel - Why wait for your flight at the airport if, by using artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics, the process of checking in and boarding can be made simpler? The goal, says Doron Zeevi from Amadeus, "is to eventually spend no more than 40 minutes from parking at the airport to the moment you board your flight at the gate," Ynet reports. This will be done by various AI systems that could inform drivers where parking is available and save them the frustrating experience of searching for it, according to the Jerusalem Post.
The Intelligent Aerospace take:
March 4, 2019-The future the Jerusalem Post envisions is nearly here already. Aircraft manufacturers are investing significant resources in AI in both flight deck technologies to improve autopilot systems and aid and reduce cognitive load for pilots. Heathrow Airport's air traffic control tower is utilizing AI to cut delays, and facial recognition scanning technology has helped the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency catch someone impersonating an American citizen. In addition, Virgin Galactic was successful in sending people to space late last year. Technology, now more than ever, is driving improvements - and what's possible - in aerospace.
