It's not surprising really as there are lots of examples where software can outperform a human in situations where a limited number of optimal
This is great in a situation where the AI has all the data to hand (i.e the simulation environment in the article where the AI is just crunching
numbers generated within it's own program ) but this is a country mile away from having it fly against a real pilot in the physical world.
Significant amounts of raw data from multiple sensors, comm links, databases, parallel processing sources etc need to be constantly ingressed,
processed and then the outcome verified against what is actually happening.
It will happen eventually but if the Google Car/Boston Dynamics level of real time environmental processing and spatial awareness is indicative of
current capabilities- there's a long way to go....
