We can glean a lot about this type of relationship from fighter-pilot training. Professionals have flown with so-called fly-by-wire, a catchall term for any computer-controlled flight assistance, since the Carter administration. Like Autopilot, fly-by-wire is an assistive technology meant to augment, but not absorb, the pilot’s responsibility to manage the craft. Pilots undergo years of training before taking control of the cockpit, gaining an intimate awareness of what the computer is seeing and how it’s processing the information. They also learn to maintain situation awareness and be ready to react, despite the presence of technology—as opposed to taking a laissez-faire, let-the-plane-do-the-work attitude.
