Should Robots Pilot Airplanes?
Evidence is still being gathered but it now appears as though the crash of Germanwings Flight 9525 may not have been accidental.
In response many airlines are implementing a policy of requiring that two pilots are in the cockpit at all times. Some say this would not happen if planes were piloted by robots. Others scoff at the suggestion, saying that an increased dependence on technology would only exacerbate the vulnerability of aircraft.
Would it make you more comfortable to fly if robots were piloting commercial planes?
