  • Publication number: 20220204180
    Abstract: A system and method to assist aircraft pilots with rapid decision-making in cases where the pilot needs to make a flight diversion at low altitudes due to an emergency (for example, loss of thrust). Once an emergency need for diversion is detected, the system and method generates a list of alternative airports the plane can reach given: (i) the current conditions of the plane; (ii) a real-emergency time simulation of evolving conditions of the plane; (iii) the environment at potential landing sites; and (iv) the environment on the flight path to those sites. For airports potentially within reach, the system and method provides a confidence scores for successful landings for alternative simulated landing options. The simulations and confidence scores take into account aircraft position, altitude, speed, and possible further problems with the aircraft for the both the current flight path and for each simulated alternative.

  • Patent number: 10878309
    Abstract: A knowledge graph is traversed by receiving a knowledge graph at a deep neural network, the knowledge graph including a plurality of nodes connected by a plurality of edges, each respective edge of the plurality of edges being associated with a corresponding distance representing embedded semantic information. The deep neural network is trained to capture the embedded semantic information. A path query is received at the deep neural network. A context is determined for the received path query at the deep neural network. The deep neural network performs the traversing of the knowledge graph in response to the received path query, based upon the determined context and the embedded semantic information.
