It was for programming algorithms that would use artificial intelligence to model the size of the network needed for Connexion by Boeing. This was a project Boeing had to put internet capability on airplanes. If you knew how big a network was required, you would know how many transponders you needed on satellites to handle all the data flow. It used artificial intelligence to adapt to changing conditions.
If you want to read more details, I've attached one of the journal papers I published in the Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence Journal.
