Rumble AlphaDogFight Trials is the precursor to DARPA’s Air Combat Evolution (ACE) program. Eight companies competed for the top spot and the ability to fight a human fighter pilot at the end. The company’s involved are Aurora Flight Sciences, Episys Systems, Georgia Tech Research Institute, Heron Systems, Lockheed-Martin, Perspecta, Physics AI, & SoarTech. Heron Systems wins and goes on to beat the fighter pilot in 5 out of 5 games. This result caused me to look closer at the tech to see just how close we are to the realization of AI flown aircraft. During a closer look I found some extremely interesting conversations by DARPA leads that should shed some light put on them before this technology takes off... before they accomplish what the program director calls, “human-AI symbiosis.” That’s not alarming at all. Anyway, not my usual upload, but I feel an important topic. Probably more important than we all know.
