Journey by aircraft is the only option for long-distance transportation and also one of the frequently used modes of transportation of passengers. As a result, safety of passengers and efficiency of the aircraft depend on maintaining efficient running conditions. Although many safety standards are followed in the design of the aircraft, and thus th...

Neural networks perform well when they are built for a specific task and the set of inputs and the set of outputs are well defined. However, these results are very limited in scope, and communication between different neural networks to share knowledge that can lead to the performance of more general tasks is still inadequate. Communication between...
