Yes, it's a flight blog... Anyhoo, here's a little snippet...

First, there seems to be an inborn reluctance to consign more and more vertical and lateral (read: climbs, descents, and navigation) maneuvering to flight management systems. Part of that, I believe, comes not only from a reluctance to acquiesce to the reality that in most cases, the automation can do a better job than the humans, but in a real sense, from a backlash against the encroaching automation subsuming what used to be mostly art.

In any case... great blog for those who fly or, like me, ride in the back... :-)

Reminds me of reading how literally EVERY Formula 1 car now has an automatic transmission.

The onboard computers can calculate the optimum shift point more precisely than any human driver.

The driver still has to race the car.

But tasks that are better suited to automation are done that way - at least if a racing team wants to be competitive.

And so it goes.

I think F1 cars use semi-automatic transmissions. The driver controls the shifting via paddles behind the steering wheel though there is no clutch so a computer makes the physical shift.

To your point though, with ever advancing technology (AI, processing power, wide arrays of sensors, etc.,) there are certainly many things that can be broken down into mathematical calculations and those will always eventually be done better and faster by machine than man.

For some reason FCP X reminds me of HAL, just saying :-)
