Boeing, Carnegie Mellon unite to make the most of aeronautics big data

The Boeing Company is providing $7.5 million to establish a lab at Carnegie Mellon University designed to use artificial intelligence and machine-learning technologies to improve the process of making aircraft and ensuring those planes are safe. The Boeing/Carnegie Mellon Aerospace Data Analytics Lab will focus on exploiting big data generated in the design, construction and operation of aircraft to improve on such processes as maintenance schedules, which currently can be based more on historical than current data. Today’s aircraft have thousands of data-collecting sensors on them, but making the most of that information can be overwhelming.
