ICAO is funded and directed by 193 national governments to support their diplomacy and cooperation in air transport as signatory states to the Chicago Convention (1944).
Its core function is to maintain an administrative and expert bureaucracy (the ICAO Secretariat) supporting these diplomatic interactions, and to research new air transport policy and standardization innovations as directed and endorsed by governments through the ICAO Assembly, or by the ICAO Council which the assembly elects.
Description of Activities on AI
Deep learning model on criticality assessment of notices to airman (NOTAMS). Human classified messages were transformed to word vectors and used to train a recurrent neural network.
Natural language processing of working papers for 40th ICAO assembly to automatically summarize working papers and extract keywords. Sentences were extracted from over 500 working papers and classified using common corpus.
Recurrent neural network for the prediction of long landings using radar positions of approach path as predictors
