Few things can get the heart racing and the stomach gurgling like waiting in a long airport security line and freaking out over whether you will make your flight.
Pittsburgh International Airport has found a way to ease your mind — or confirm your worst fears.
Airport officials have teamed with Oakland-based software firm Zensors to tell travelers how long they will be waiting to clear security, give or take a couple of minutes…
Anuraag Jain, head of product at Carnegie Mellon University spinoff Zensors, said the project is the start of efforts to use artificial intelligence to help travelers in the often stress-filled airport environment.
“We’re applying deep learning in a way that can really become a game changer for passengers and airport operations,” he said in a statement. “We’re excited to help turn Pittsburgh into the world’s smartest airport.”
