Artificial Intelligence Easily Beats Human Fighter Pilot in DARPA Trial:
"In the battle of artificial intelligence versus a human fighter pilot, it wasn’t even close.--end quote
The artificial intelligence algorithm, developed by Heron Systems, swept a human F-16 pilot in a simulated dogfight 5-0 in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s AlphaDogfight Trials on Aug. 20. The company beat out seven other companies before going head to head with “Banger,” a pilot from the District of Columbia Air National Guard and a recent graduate of the Air Force Weapons School’s F-16 Weapons Instructor Course. The pilot, whose full name was not provided, is an operational fighter pilot with more than 2,000 hours in the F-16."
Imo, both scary and interesting.
