Millions of passengers take to the sky every day and their entertainment is a key feature of modern-day air travel. From the first in-flight movie screened in 1921 at an exposition in Chicago, to single aisle coach style television systems in the late 1970s, today’s in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems offer each passenger with their own personal system. The collaborative research project CANARIA (Cloud-enabled Aircraft Network and ARtificial Intelligence-based data Analysis), funded by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) aims to create such an innovation IFE system based on a federated communication and edge-computing network architecture. CANARIA bring together state-of-the-art technologies in networked aircraft of the future, cloud computing, and cutting-edge methods for data processing using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML).
