Artificial intelligence recently won out during simulated aerial combat against U.S. expert tacticians. Importantly, it did so using no more than the processing power available in a tiny, affordable computer (Raspberry Pi) that retails for as little as $35.

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, and according to Lee, is “the most aggressive, responsive, dynamic and credible AI I’ve seen to date.”

So the silicon brain (the Computer) is taking over gaming from humans. Chess. Checkers. Go. Flight simulated combat. Ping Pong. SteelBeasts!???


Anyway, as far as a combat flight simulated fight is concerned, I'm not too too concerned or too impressed ... because ALPHA hasn't gone one-on-one against Lusik yet. ;-)

P.S., just for fun, Google this search text: flight simulation ai opponents and see what you get.
