- Emirates President foresees planes with just one pilot, thanks to AI
- The industry needs to embrace AI and its potential benefits
- Pilotless planes might be a long way off, but the tech is already here
Imagine this for a sec: airplanes soaring through the sky with just one pilot, thanks to artificial intelligence (AI) joining the aviation game. Emirates President Tim Clark thinks it's possible but admits it might take a while and isn't sure if passengers would dig it.
He's like, "People kinda like knowing there are two pilots up there," but also says it's essential for the industry to keep an eye on AI's rapid growth and figure out how to ride the wave without freaking out 5.
Clark's all about embracing AI, saying, "If you're in business and you've got something as powerful as this coming along, you've got to take time to look at what this could do to improve what you do"
When it comes to totally pilotless planes, Clark believes it's feasible but still a long way off. He doesn't think it'll happen in his lifetime, but the tech is already there. However, he's pretty sure there'll always be someone on the flight deck 5.
Right now, the autonomous aircraft market is just a baby, but some start-ups are already working on developing pilotless planes for the future. So buckle up, because the sky's the limit!
