AI system beats US military pilot in F-16 dogfight

The AI developed by Heron Systems defeated an experienced F-16 pilot in each of five rounds, although the success in a simulation is just one step towards fully autonomous systems being used on F-16 fighter jets. This was a precursor to DARPA’s air combat evolution programme, which will eventually fly live aircraft using AI algorithms to demonstrate that the technology will work in the real world.

Yeah giving an AI full control of a weapon system is just a bad idea.

AI won't be hindered by pulling more G's, which is one heck of an advantage. Can always have command and control at a remote site.

I’m a fan of keeping a human in the hardware loop. Anything that relies on a wireless system to keep the human decision making in the loop is too vulnerable in my opinion.

Yes because terminator hasn't already proven how great an idea this is

Humans will pass out in excessive G-force, these computers will not suffer this limitation. The skies could become ours once more.

Queue the movie "Stealth". Sure an AI plane could beat a human simply because of the lack of G-forces affecting an autonomous plane as opposed to a human piloted one, but I wouldn't trust a computer to handle weapons of mass destruction for fear of it malfunctioning or being hacked. The worse thing that can happen is it becomes a "Skynet" type situation like in the Terminator movies.

Flight Simulator is not reality. I will wait for an automated fighter to do this.
