This is coolbert:

Rise of the machines the progress continues unabated!!

We are on the verge of a breakthrough? Or rather THEY are on the verge of a breakthrough?

AI [artificial intelligence] aerial combat the autonomous [?] UCAV [unmanned aerial combat vehicle] now can best the best?

Read it all at Freeper copied by myself almost in entirety:

"Artificial Intelligence beats human expert in air combat [...]"

"Artificial intelligence (AI) developed by a University of Cincinnati doctoral graduate was recently assessed by subject-matter expert and retired United States Air Force Colonel Gene Lee - who holds extensive aerial combat experience as an instructor and Air Battle Manager with considerable fighter aircraft expertise - in a high-fidelity air combat simulator."

"The artificial intelligence, dubbed ALPHA, was the victor in that simulated scenario,"

"The application is specifically designed for use with Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles (UCAVs) in simulated air-combat missions for research purposes."

. . . .

"In fact, it was only after early iterations of ALPHA bested other computer program opponents that Lee then took to manual controls against a more mature version of ALPHA last October. Not only was Lee not able to score a kill against ALPHA after repeated attempts, he was shot out of the air every time during protracted engagements in the simulator.

"Since that first human vs. ALPHA encounter in the simulator, this AI has repeatedly bested other experts as well, and is even able to win out against these human experts when its (the ALPHA-controlled) aircraft are deliberately handicapped in terms of speed, turning, missile capability and sensors."

 "'I was surprised at how aware and reactive it was. It seemed to be aware of my intentions and reacting instantly to my changes in flight and my missile deployment. It knew how to defeat the shot I was taking. It moved instantly between defensive and offensive actions as needed'." - - Colonel Lee.

IT knew and moved instantly!! IT!

Whoa boy!! Arnold we need you now!!
