Robots are going to replace human pilots
A renowned professor of Computer Engineering - Dr. Subhash Kak had previously issued a warning that machines could eventually "replace humans at literally all jobs".
According to him, robots will be able to absorb more information, access it more quickly and after computing it take actions that are more complex, and yet more logical, than any person ever could.
Now, Dr. Kak area predicts that one area of the economy that could get severely impacted by AI is aviation.
This comes after we reported how a robot take over could plunge the world into a hellish dystopia.
He told us: "Robots and cognitive machines are already more advanced than humans at most jobs.
"Recognising faces, for example, or analysing traffic on the internet, or making sense of ones likes and dislikes and using that for marketing, or in the flying of the plane.
"They have overtaken humans at intellectual games likes chess."
He referenced reports last year, published in Wired, that jet manufacturer Boeing were targeting the production of jetliners that fly themselves, making the decisions currently made by humans.
Technology already carries out a number of aviation tasks, such as autopilot, but the future could see humans taken out of the equation.Although this would cut costs for industries including aviation, Dr Kak adds it is likely to result in global depression.
He said: "There will be massive unemployment. People want to be useful and work provides meaning, and so the world would sink into despair." Luckily, however, Dr Kak believes we are a long way off having the technology to replace the human pilot just yet. He continued: "I don't believe complete control from take-off to landing will be given to robots any time soon.
He feels that there are liability issues as well as uncharted weather and accidental situations that would require humans. A good example is a case when a plane had to be landed in a river.
Eventually, the aviation industry will go on to do cost-cutting using robots. And this is a trend that we will see in other industries as well.
