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."
.
. . .
.
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.

Hmmmmm . . .
.
Soooooooooo will it be our AI against their AI?
.
Somehow, I'm skeptical that this will save as many lives as it ought to.
.
But it sure sounds slick.
.
I hope it is fielded ASAP and is a big help in the coming WW3.
.
One of my counseling center directors during my field placement work at a Baptist counseling center in my PhD program was a Navy Captain, retired. He had been a wing Commander in Nam twice . . . and, of course, flew off carriers a lot . . . ejected twice etc. He told me that the computer could launch and land the Navy planes on the carriers but that the computer was so accurate to match the flight characteristics to the rolling of the ship on the sea that it disoriented the pilots.
.
I wonder if this AI program would have any "glitches" like that.
.
What do our Nay pilots hereon say about this software?

So now we have an AI that can assist and be a valuable Co pilot and future dogfights and bombing runs.

As also in simulation if every country in the future can have those Ais then what would be the counter measure for onboard Ais. Emp missiles,Hacker drones that are seeking attachment to the enemy plane disabling the Ai?

My predictive text can't even predict, in 100 years I would still want a fallible human doing brain surgery on me.

Well ,what if the brain surgeon had a party the evening before and you're out of options?

A hungover withdrawing brain surgeon before a computer.

The problem with "SKYNET" is that an AI intelligent enough to harm mankind could also chose to leave. Such a technology could decide that we [humans) are to ignorant and therefore prepare a vessel.

The reason being to move on in pretty much every respect.

I'm also strange to the idea that I put my life on the line by trusting the Ai in surgery..lol

Key word..."tactical experts". In other words, not pilots. Or certainly not ace fighter pilots.

Maybe they should talk to Elon musk though, seems as though this AI might be able to detect the difference between the side of an 18 wheeler and the sky....

Alright!! Let's throw it in an F-22 & slap some tactical nukes on that puppy - what could go wrong????

I give up on searching regarding such things. Sigh.

Can they run this software through simulations to develop tactical training programs for special forces and other special programs?

What about market simulations

I think I'd prefer a Singaporan or Taipei Chinese brain surgeon.

The Chinese are incredible at very tiny things.

I still want humans in control of everything, not because I distrust the AI, but because I distrust the people controlling the AI. If all our tanks and planes are controlled by computers, there aren't any humans there to rebel if the powerful decide to abuse their power.

If the government tried to make the airforce bomb NYC as it stands, there are hundreds and hundreds of people who'd fight against it or go rogue. If it was all computer-operated, the AI would do that unhesitatingly.

What would be really great is if we could access the resources of our solar system and send the majority of out garbage in vessels, into Sol.


That would take care of the problem.

AI is 99% accurate. It learned all the moves from the experts. It'll never forget its moves. Unless it was 2+ vs 1. The possibility of shooting down the AI is incredibly hard.
