About This Book

The application of artificial intelligence and machine learning will result in an increase in speed and efficiency, as well as a reduction in high-intensity workloads placed on humans, which will help to ensure their safety. Additionally, the use of these technologies will result in enhanced security alerts, which will make it possible to implement more complex technologies, such as autonomous focus-based navigation and data ecosystems.


Artificial intelligence is used in a wide variety of industries. And now artificial intelligence is being used in many areas of the airports and automation during the flight. The AI platform analyzes traveler historical data such as previous bookings to understand and track behavior, metadata, purchase history, and real-time data in order to provide highly personalized offers for travelers. This is made possible by the platform's ability to process large amounts of data and improve functions and procedures. Grow both the number of repeat customers and their lifetime value. In addition, the procedures for their baggage, locating assistance while they were traveling, mitigating the effects of the delays, the planning of their flight, the planning of their crew, and so on.

On the other hand, aircrafts are able to use predictive algorithms to process maintenance data in order to discover the best maintenance options available when planning flights. These are one of the most attractive aspects of the entire AI industry. Flight delays, potential problems, and even necessary repairs and maintenance procedures can all be overcome with these ingenious solutions that airlines can implement. Flight management and Air traffic managements are other aspects of application of AI in aviation.
