Researcher Suggests Alternative to the Black Box in Airplanes

Following the recent crash of Malaysian Airlines flight 370, Dr. Krishna Kavi, professor of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and Director of the Net-Centric Software & Systems Center, has been interviewed about his “glass box” technology. Kavi was first quoted by the New York Times in an article from 2009 after Air France Flight 447 crashed into the Atlantic Ocean. In July 2010, Kavi wrote "Beyond the Black Box," which was published in IEEE Spectrum. Since the disaster, Kavi has been quoted in articles from Al Jazeera America, Medium.com, Discovery News, and The New York Times. Kavi also was interviewed for a NBC 5 news segment.
