Abstract:

The use of artificial intelligence methods in an airborne computer system can enhance flight safety by reducing the possibility of pilot error caused by inadequate or misleading information. The intelligent computer system would have the ability to screen information for relevancy to the current situation. The selection of information requires knowledge of the context which may depend upon the phase of flight, the condition of the aircraft, or external factors. The phase-based context might be represented by scripts. The condition-based and the external context can be represented by a cause-effect net. Knowledge of context will not only enable priority resolution of information, but also definitions of goals for generating plans to cope with abnormal situations. Author
