2021 ICNS Tech Talk: Artificial Intelligence for the Aviation Mission
A Virtual Presentation by Prem Jadhwani CTO, GTI
Presented: Tuesday, 2 March 2021
Artificial intelligence is impacting the future of virtually every industry and every human being. It is projected that it will have a greater impact on the world than that of electricity. Come learn what it is, why it is so important and what it’s potential impact will be on the aviation industry.
Theme: Agility and Sustainability: Embracing Rapid Evolution and Uncertainty
20 – 22 April 2021
The Integrated Communications Navigation and Surveillance (ICNS) Conference is the premier international aviation conference addressing technology and policy advances in communications, navigation, and surveillance (CNS) and air traffic management (ATM). The ICNS Conference provides a forum for leaders and technical experts from government, industry, and academia around the world to address important policy issues and set the future direction of CNS and ATM.
Don’t miss this FREE opportunity to hear, learn, and interact with top officials and leaders (see the agenda for details) as well as researchers in CNS and ATM.
Due to the ongoing pandemic crisis, ICNS 2021 will be an online conference. The program will focus on the challenges of sustaining our CNS/ATM infrastructure while simultaneously addressing future CNS and ATM requirements, which are driven by evolving technologies and transportation modes: UAS, Advanced Air Mobility (AAM), commercial space operations, cybersecurity, spectrum access and capacity issues, hypersonic aircraft operations, and the impact of artificial intelligence and machine learning on ATM concepts and procedures.
