Well, it looks like 2021 is projecting to be even more fun than 2020......Well, what the hell, bring on Skynet.



The Air Force is hoping to pit an autonomous drone equipped with an artificial intelligence-driven flight control system against a fighter jet with a human pilot in a little over a year. The service has described this effort in the past as a "big moonshot" that could revolutionize air-to-air combat in ways that have so far been limited to the realm of fiction - at least as far as we know.




Air Force Lieutenant General Jack Shanahan, head of the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC), revealed that the Air Force had set the goal of holding the faceoff in July 2021 during a remote event that the Air Force Association's Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Studies held on June 4, 2020. The Pentagon established the JAIC in 2018 to serve as a central point of focus for AI developments and related activities across the U.S. military.




Regardless, the general concept of a fully-autonomous unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) capable of air-to-air combat, as well as air-to-ground strikes, hold great potential to fundamentally change the character of aerial warfare, something The War Zone has explored in great depth in the past. At its most basic, a UCAV would be able to perform many of the same functions as manned aircraft, but would be able to make key decisions faster and more accurately, taking into account much more information in a shorter period of time, without any concern about being distracted or confused by the general chaos of combat. They can also be networked into swarms that work cooperatively to maximize their combat effectiveness at any given time far beyond what a human-piloted formation could.

It is all special effects to get you to belive in it.
and accept the 100's of billions they will spend on it.
a Lot of people get Very rich off things like this.

and they will have bomers that will bomb any one.
not like a piolet that had a hart.
but they did get piolets to drop 2 nucs on citys before!
and that was just to Test them!!!!!

Do you want Green Lanterns? Because that's how you get Green Lanterns.

From article


Shanahan did not offer any details about the design of the unmanned aircraft that is supposed to take part in this in this future aerial duel or specifics about its planned capabilities. He did say that Air Force Research Laboratory's (AFRL) Autonomy Capability Team 3 (ACT3), led by Steve Rogers, was still in charge of the effort, which Inside Defense first reported the existence of in May 2018. AFRL created ACT3 that year to focus on AI developments.


Captain America in charge of the design behind the new skynet....

Really? you don't believe they have this tech. Impressive. Didn't know someone that was a recurring participant on this site would question that they actually have the tech.....all that other crap aside, you really truly don't believe they have it? Gosh, that is really interesting.
