Bad Robot Controlling Human Judgement

Postby Richard » Thu Apr 04, 2019 7:21 pm

We have heard about the very recent world-wide grounding of Boeing aircraft that use software systems which can override pilot control and no matter what the pilot does to correct the situation the computer software can effectively pull an aircraft down to its doom, killing all passengers on board.
This sounds completely insane and an example of 'fly-by-wire' that needs addressing.
Surely it boils down to who has control ultimate, the computer system or the pilot?
A sorry state of affairs indeed!
