Advances in autonomy, robotics, supercomputing and neuroscience could change the face of aerospace over the coming decades if technology, societal, regulatory and other challenges can be overcome.

Elsewhere is a  report on friction among  NTSB members on aircraft automation issues in the wake of the Asiana Flight 214 crash (page 34).
