Data & AI Leadership Day Talk:
Tackling Flight Delays and Optimizing Turnaround Time with AI

Have you ever boarded a plane and then waited endlessly before takeoff? Ever wondered why it took so long? The people working at airport operations are often wondering the same, and with the advent of computer vision, we can now meticulously map the whole turnaround and conclude which processes are causing delays.

We’ll present Schiphol Amsterdam Airport’s journey to open the black box that is the turnaround. We’ll show how we went from data generation to use-case discovery, and business implementation. Turns out we can do more with this data than we anticipated!
