It is now widely recognised that artificial intelligence (AI) offers new perspectives to businesses across many industries. However, the issue of ethical use of AI and data remains a highly controversial topic that could impact the adoption rate. The controversy often stems from the heightened safety concerns and complexity of AI operations, particularly in the aviation industry.
The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has raised four major questions for introducing AI in aviation. They are:
- How to establish public trust in AI-based systems;
- How to integrate the ethical dimension of AI (transparency, non-discrimination, fairness, etc.) in safety certification processes;
- How to prepare the certification of AI systems; and
- What standards, protocols, and methods we need to develop to ensure that AI will further improve air transport safety.
To effectively harness the power of AI in the aviation sector, the industry should start to develop and adopt an AI ethical framework. In this event, our speakers will share their perspectives on the responsible application and the social values of AI in aviation for the future.
