Software is not Deux Ex Machina

Software can only do what it is programmed to do. Before Captain Skully, would YOU have programmed your system to recognize a river as a viable emergency landing point?

You give a man the rest of his life to figure out a solution to a problem where he is an expert in the field, and you will be amazed at what he comes up with.

How do you program that?
