Back in 1976, computer scientist Joseph Weizenbaum expressed serious reservations about Artificial Intelligence (AI) replacing certain functions in society. In his influential book ‘Computer Power and Human Reason’, Weizenbaum argued that certain positions – including those of soldiers, police officers, judges, and therapists – require authentic feelings of empathy, compassion, and wisdom.

Global air transport is continuing to expand, with 5% annual growth in passenger numbers predicted for the next 20 years. To meet this demand, Airbus in Europe and Boeing in the USA are each set to produce almost 1,900 airliners in 2018: more than double the total production of both companies in 2008. This is a historical development, forcing aerospace companies worldwide to upgrade their factories to support these increased production rates while maintaining high levels of quality. Enhancing industrial production is still the biggest challenge for aircraft manufacturers.
