Combat AI beats the Air Force’s top tactical experts

A new artificial intelligence flight combat system dubbed ALPHA has taken on one of the Air Force’s top tactical experts and won. Retired USAF Colonel Gene Lee — an experienced combat instructor with “considerable fighter aircraft expertise” — was repeatedly shot down during engagements with ALPHA in a high-fidelity air combat simulation. Lee called his computerized opponent “the most aggressive, responsive, dynamic and credible AI I’ve seen to date.”
