On the 13-14th of November, 2017 Future Sky Safety took part in the Human Factors in Aviation Safety Conference 2017 held in London Gatwick Airport, UK.
The conference featured presentations and discussion on the latest research and practice in the “ultra-safe” sector of aviation, trying to answer the question, How do we improve human performance in today’s aviation business?
In this context, P6 Human Performance Envelope organised and chaired a session dedicated to adaptive automation, entitled “Is adaptive automation still a useful concept?”. Keynotes included:
- Kathy Abbott (FAA) with a presentation on “Automation, Autonomy and Artificial Intelligence: Where are we, and what does this mean for aviation?”;
- Fiona Cayzer (BAE Systems) on “Autonomous systems: designing pilots out of the loop or back into the loop?”;
- Stefano Bonelli (Deep Blue), presenting the STRESS project; and
- Sylvain Hourlier (Thales Avionics) offering “A cockpit designer’s perspective on adaptive automation”.
