Late next week, you can watch AI compete in an air battle against an Air Force fighter pilot. This event will actually unfold online, as a virtual reality simulation, but it will show some of the current efforts of DARPA. You have until Monday to sign-up watch this, but it’s only open to US citizens. Will it be as interesting as Top Gun? Who knows!
An AI-controlled fighter jet will battle a US Air Force pilot in a simulated dogfight next week — and you can watch the action online.

The clash is the culmination of DARPA’s AlphaDogfight competition, which the Pentagon’s “mad science” wing launched to increase trust in AI-assisted combat. DARPA hopes this will raise support for using algorithms in simpler aerial operations, so pilots can focus on more challenging tasks, such as organizing teams of unmanned aircraft across the battlespace.
