A team from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology (KAIST) is developing a humanoid robot called ‘Pibot’ that can fly aircraft without cockpit modifications.

Pibot is the world’s first humanoid pilot, using AI and robotics to manipulate cockpit controls, even during turbulence. It incorporates cameras for monitoring, the memory of flight charts for navigation, and the ability to communicate with air traffic controllers and humans through voice synthesis (using ChatGPT’s language synthesis model). Pibot’s innovation lies in its capability to pilot aircraft like a human, revolutionizing aviation technology.

Usage: The example can be used as an application of AI in S&T paper.
