This keynote will explore how Airbus is using artificial intelligence (AI) and big data to transform itself and the aerospace industry. We'll look at real-world examples of how these technologies are improving our products, making our operations more efficient, and helping our customers do the same. We'll also touch on how quantum computing could change the game. Our ultimate goal is to significantly reduce our environmental impact and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
