AI News Sharing
The DARPA AlphaDogfight Trials aim to demonstrate the feasibility of developing effective, intelligent autonomous agents capable of defeating adversary aircraft in a dogfight.
DARPA Deputy Director David Honey and other officials involved with DARPA’s Air Combat Evolution (ACE) program say, the three-day virtual games will help flesh out how human and machine pilots can share operational control of a fighter jet to maximize the chances of mission success.
AlphaDogfight Trials is a precursor to the DARPA Air Combat Evolution (ACE) program, which involves AI development and demonstration in three program phases – modeling and simulation, sub-scale aircraft, and full-scale aircraft testing. Ultimately, ACE will be flying AI algorithms on live aircraft to demonstrate trusted, scalable, human-level autonomy for air combat.
