How is AI transforming the aviation industry?

Transforming industries, especially ones that have been around for a long time, is not always easy. Yet, AI is transforming the aviation industry and passenger experience in some profound ways. From facial recognition technology to help identify passengers to predictive analytics to help with logistics and routing, aviation and travel are already seeing the benefits of AI. Additionally, if you add personalized digital assistants and real-time navigation airports will become fully accessible and immersive hubs for travel, retail and entertainment.
