Adding a Third Dimension: Autonomy in the Air
Deep learning is well on the way to solving autonomy for cars, and research attention is turning to the next frontier: air travel. We'll look at why electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft are now feasible and being developed, and how their control systems will differ from those of ground vehicles. We'll also look at the huge potential that deep learning offers in this space, but also its unique safety and regulatory challenges.
