The AI-powered airport of the future is full of promise-and jeopardy, writes Teague futurist Devin Liddell.
The first biometric airport terminal is already up and running, thanks to Delta’s collaboration with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Transportation Security Administration, and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Similar systems are now operational at Dubai International Airport, at least for first- and business-class fares. While groundbreaking, these systems–powered by artificial intelligence–are early exemplars of the developing technological changeover of airport and airline activities. They are cultivating preludes to artificial intelligence’s eventual attacks throughout the passenger know-how. Division of these forays will be driven by technology; we’ll have increasingly smarter and capable tools for separately controlling gigantic intricacies and creating brand-new effectiveness. Another part will be driven by new competitive distress; in the face of autonomous vehicles that will volunteer pressuring alternatives to operating, the future of air travel are in need of robust improvements.
