AI could make that decision now -

Probability of safe controlled landing on water 90+% -v- probability of safe controlled landing on runway with unknown variables.

The question really is will we ever feel safer with a machine doing the live/die decisions instead of a self aware pilot.

Set up a AI simulator with guaranteed 100% fatal crash situations and see what it comes up with as a landing attempt, human pilots have been very creative at times and beat the odds.
