More of our lives to be verified digitally
Harnessing intelligence to improve performance
Powerful mega-trends are driving requirements
Barbara Dalibard, CEO, SITA
Digital technologies are bringing many benefits to air travel, but they also pose new threats. This panel discussion on cybersecurity at the Air Transport IT Summit in June was very timely.
As we move deeper into the digital age, the more our personal lives and the transactions we undertake will be managed and verified digitally, either on our mobile devices or online.
Mittu Chandilya, former Managing Director and CEO of AirAsia India, talks about the evolution of Indian aviation, the role of technology in making aviation smarter and the challenge of enabling change.
Denver International Airport is mid-way through a five-year strategic program that’s harnessing intelligence and data analytics to improve performance. Robert Kastelitz, Denver’s Senior Vice-President of Technologies and CIO, talks about the airport’s digital strategy.
For me it was a personal ‘alignment of the stars’. As SITA combines the areas I have built my career on and am very passionate about; information and communications technology (ICT), innovation and travel. The combination of all three makes it the perfect place for me.
What we are starting to see is the evolution of something called deep learning and machine learning which we can start to think of as a solution to be used in the information security space.
While blockchain technology will take some time to develop fully and standards to be agreed on across the industry, we believe the blockchain promises to enable a far more secure identity solution while making it easier for the passenger.
SITA is a member-owned organization with over 430 active members from across the air transport community.
