You're not Boeing to believe this, but... Another deadly 737 Max control bug found


Re: If it's Boeing

Problem is that all "modern" airliners - and all other forms of mechanical transport - contain so much software and we all know how crap software is. Turn it off and on again. Doesn't matter which manufacturer built it; Boeing happened to be caught out, but all the others probably suffer the same problems.

What a future we all have to look forwards to. Planes inexplicably falling out of the sky; cars inexplicably running off the road; ships colliding with things.

There's something comforting about the simplicity of mechanical systems, or even systems where the software isn't in control. AI just isn't intelligent, or not until it becomes self aware...

What are you doing Dave?...
