Re: Hey software, get the fuck out of the way!

If you are going to give software the ability to countermand the flight crew, then you need to have fault-tolerant redundant sensing systems in place to make sure that the systems on the plane have accurate information.

Or... you simply do not give the software the ability to irrevocably countermand the flight crew. Period.
