Sentient Science: Redefining The Approach To Mechanical Systems Maintenance

Top 10 Aviation Consulting/Service Companies - 2020

Not a single industry exists that has escaped the digitalization storm and the aviation sector is no exception. From AI to Machine Learning, robots to digital twins–the aviation panorama is leaving no stone unturned to jump into the technology-driven bandwagon. For instance, today, many airline companies have installed chatbots to communicate with passengers and give them a digitally-enhanced experience. Besides, aviation manufacturers have also included AR/ VR inside the airplanes to bring in an immersive way to engage passengers during their time inside the plane. AR/ VR technologies are also supporting aviation firms in crew training, seat upselling, marketing and advertisement, among many others. Further, to reduce the chances of contact in the wake of COVID-19, several organizations have adopted AI-based facial recognition software to conduct biometric screening methodologies to minimize human dependency.
