Melissa Drew, Digital Transformation Executive Advisor at IBM, gives a detailed overview of digital transformation as it relates to the airline and logistic indsutries. From changes to the in-flight entertainment systems to 10 new airlines lanuching last year, digital transformation is necessary. Melissa said, “embracing AI technologies…and other emerging technologies, isn’t a trend any longer. It’s truly what’s going to make that airline differentiate from its competitors. And if it doesn’t move quickly, or at least start in that direction, then they’re going to be falling behind,”
The airline industry is in trouble. Flight cancellations are wrecking travel plans for millions as carriers struggle to recover from the coronavirus pandemic, which triggered massive cutbacks in the number of passengers, forcing them to slash their staffing both on the ground and in the air. To make matters worse, many airports and aircraft are mired in decades-old practices and creaking technology. Join us as we host startup CEOs and Melissa Drew from IBM to discuss how technology can improve our jet-lagged transportation networks.
