On the topic of introducing AI in aviation, the European Aviation Safety Agency highlighted 4 questions to be addressed:
- 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?
- What standards, protocols, and methods we need to develop to ensure that AI will further improve air transport safety?
Michael Daniel of Aviation Insight and Dr Bicky Bhangu of Rolls-Royce give their take on how the industry should develop and adopt an AI ethical framework – from both a regulatory and safety perspective, and from the point of view of achieving the desired outcomes of deploying AI. This event was co-organised by AAIS and SGInnovate on 26 July 2021.
