I still don't understand why he had to be named. There are still data protection laws in place, so I wonder on what basis they took the leap and published his name.
You're not achieving anything by publishing the name, you're only inviting idiots to hunt down his family, as if they weren't in enough pain as it is already.

I wish no one would leak the CVR contents this soon.
They're not being leaked. This is an official source informing us about the current state of investigations.
|Quoting RayChuang (Reply 132):|
How can a pilot in good conscience fly 150 innocent people including school children and babies into the ground? I don't believe it for a second. That was the same story they fed us for MH370. When investigators are clueless, they come up with these crazy theories that of course nobody can disprove unless they were sitting in the cockpit right when it happened. There are surely other scenarios that are more plausible than this.
Sounds like a classic case of "es kann nicht sein, was nicht sein darf" ("what cannot be, mustn't be", roughly translated), i.e. you rule out a possibility (pilot suicide) because you don't want to believe it, regardless of the evidence.

You need to understand the difference between existing procedural machines in place and new generation of machine learning... it might be that the current computers required for the task are still too heavy and too energy-consuming, but computers are still doubling the processing power every year. Note that this growth is exponential.
Having studied computer science and subjects like AI
(as well as human-machine interaction), I'm quite aware of and understand the concepts you describe.
I just don't subscribe to the promises and prospects you attach to them.
|Quoting s5daw (Reply 151):|
Once you have AI learning in all the planes flying around, it will learn really quick, and new experience is going to be shared and updated on the fly. Yes, there are still going to be casualties - but once something happens, it will never happen again.
The more autonomous your AI
system becomes, the less deterministic it becomes. In more than one way, what you describe is a more human computer system - which completely negates your premise, which is to exclude the human factor.
Discussing this in more detail is probably something best left to a separate thread, anyway.
|Quoting AI (Reply 154):|
Is there any possibility that the copilot became medically incapacitated & somehow crashed the plane. After all there was no response from him or any shouting from the copilot that we are aware of so he very well could have been unconscious.
Not according to the public prosecutor. The CVR recording contains the sound of the door closing, followed by inputs on the flight control computer, which coincide with the plane starting its descent. There is constant breathing audible in the cockpit until the end of the recording. So the descent was initiated deliberately by the co-pilot as soon as the pilot had left the cockpit, and the co-pilot then kept overriding the pilot's attempts to open the cockpit door.
