Boeing-Funded Lab To Apply Analytics, Artificial Intelligence To Airplanes

Boeing Co. hopes that a new lab hosted by Carnegie Mellon University will enable analytics and artificial intelligence to dramatically improve aircraft maintenance and safety.The Chicago-based aerospace giant will pay $7.5 million over the next three years to fund the Boeing/Carnegie Mellon Aerospace Data Analytics Lab in Pittsburgh.CMU computer science professor Jaime Carbonell, who also heads the university’s Language Technologies Institute, will lead the lab.Officials hope to combine information gathered during aircraft manufacturing and maintenance with the data gleaned from their onboard sensors and embedded computers.READ MORE: A study in machinery failure detectionIn particular, engineers hope to be able to eventually craft maintenance schedules based on specific airplanes, rather than on historic patterns for similar aircraft. The lab’s work could also help improve aircraft performance and passenger comfort.”The mass of…
