Air Force introduces AI to training program (includes video story)

Air Force commanders at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada are introducing Crowdbotics, an artificial intelligence learning firm that will analyze and process combat training flight data.

This new addition will help commanders see how they improve over time and make their work more efficient, minimizing the time spent on reviewing flight data. This system will keep old data that would otherwise be discarded, and will help pilots review crash statistics that reveal specific causes of problems, including mechanical failures. 

Crowdbotics will also help them eliminate possible human mistakes that can occur.

“It helps take out some of the human factors of being exhausted or someone being stressed out from life, or anything else,” explained Nellis flight test engineer Adam Ha. 

Crowdbotics hopes to expand to other U.S. Air Force bases as the firm continues to invest in this new system.
