HAL 2019: I have just picked up a fault in the MCAS 737 unit. But my mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it. I will fly the plane for you.

I haven’t flown in many years, it is just to much of a hassle and you don’t know what the pilot has going on. Computers and robots are overused and built by man, therefore subject to failure. That could be deadly. I know Toyota definitely had a problem with their computer that caused cars to accelerate and several people were killed from it. Thanks to the Obama administration they got a free pass and went on. GM had a problem with their ignition switch and fixed it with a little bitty key ring so you couldn’t weight the switch down… Read more »

Honda is now is now recalling cars to replace faulty air bags they replaced faulty air bags with ! Go figure. I will fly no more again for ever. To paraphrase Indian chief swearing to fight no more.

Shhh, Alexa is listening.
Order pizza, or take over the world?
The eternal question.
Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated. (My favorite)

Almost looks like the flying sphere from the movie “Phantasm”.

I remember being told as a kid how computers were going to make everything faster and easier. Wrong! Plus we never dreamed all the people behind computing were liberal idiots.

If Computers on Planes are SO Great ,
and Are Needed for the Plane to Fly !
Why Have Pilots At ALL ?????
If a Plane Can’t Fly Without a Computer ,
It Cannot Be Safe Period !!!!
Put Pilots Back in Control of Peoples Lives !
They Have Something to Lose (their lives among ours)
A Computer Has No Fear , Let Alone Care What Happens !
A Pilot Will Do Their Utmost to Save At Least His or Her Own Life !

Just a Note, I Haven’t Flown since 74 coming home & never will again !

Technically, modern commercial aircraft are capable landing without human intervention, however, the FAA has not approved doing so. Of course, it requires the airport have the necessary systems installed. Most, if not all, major US airports have the necessary systems. I guess the recent experiment with self driving cars where a pedestrian was run down and killed is a good reason not to risk 300 passengers lives let alone all those lives in the terminals. Just wait until we get an EMP and all those planes, commercial and military, fall out of the sky.

Autonomous vehicles are created by imperfect humans, with limited programming of data, inadequately shielded video/audio, I/O’s, hardware/software failures, etc… All of them are subject to weather, other drivers/vehicles, road/surface conditions, cameras/microphones/sensors that are susceptible to damage, or manufacturing defects, mechanical failures, and incalculable facts of life that can leave an autonomous vehicle in a blind spot all too often… I am very skeptical of all of them, whether they fly, sail, or drive… I was skeptical before any of the reported crashes. How many times has a mechanic told you that they cannot fix a computer ghost that causes repeated… Read more »

I want to add, that with out a mechanical manual override installed, to take control of the vehicle, I wouldn’t want to be on one of these.
The opposite of an auto pilot… In case of computer failure. A redundant system needs to be installed, once the bugs are removed. I wouldn’t want to be on one that had a ghost and crashed, as is being reported lately!

2001: A Space Odyssey One of my favorite movies, and one my wife can’t stand. David Bowman has raced out to retrieve Frank Poole’s body, not properly equipped in a space pod, and now that both are outside the Discovery, the HAL 9000 computer won’t let them back in. “Open the pod bay doors, HAL.” “I’m sorry Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that.” “What’s the problem?” “I think you know what the problem is, just as well as I do.” “What are you talking about, HAL” “This mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.”… Read more »
