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. Our special report on innovation begins on page 40. The cover design by Aviation Week’s Art Department features the Atlas robot developed for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency by Boston Dynamics. Elsewhere is a report on friction among NTSB members on aircraft automation issues in the wake of the Asiana Flight 214 crash (page 34).
