AI Bests Fighter Pilot in AlphaDogfight Trial at Johns Hopkins APL
In a matchup of human versus machine, the decisive winner was Heron Systems’ artificial intelligence (AI) against an experienced human F-16 fighter pilot in a simulated aerial battle that capped the AlphaDogfight Trials (ADT) on Aug. 20 at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Maryland. The competition took place at the APL’s Intelligent Systems Center.
APL’s AI agents gave teams a run on the first day with all eight teams virtually flying their algorithms against five APL-developed computer adversaries. APL’s algorithms were developed to perform at different skill levels, allowing the industry agents to train similarly to actual pilots.Read the full press release here: https://www.jhuapl.edu/PressRelease/200828-AI-bests-human-fighter-pilot-in-AlphaDogfight-trial-at-APL
