Turbine Training Center Blog for Cessna 208 Caravan & Beechcraft King Air pilots
You want a real “ooh wee ooh?” Consider this, George Orwell only missed “Big Brother is watching” by 20 Years! Now, here’s another “ooh wee ooh:” TERMINATOR 3: THE RISE OF THE MACHINES may very well be only twelve years off! For the first time ever, an AI (Artificial Intelligence) pilot defeated an Air Force Colonel in virtual combat. As a result, if your name is John Connor and you look anything like Arnold Schwarzenegger you may want to keep on your toes! And, if you are interested in Aviation, you probably know that you need to stay abreast with the ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE FIGHTER AND CESSNA 208 TRAINING.
“Perhaps the most interesting part of all this,” Dale Wolcott, President of TURBINE TRAINING in Manhattan, Kansas, pointed out, “is that this ‘Artificial Intelligence’ pilot is being developed as an aide to human pilots, not to replace them.”
Dale is absolutely right. According to Nicholas Ernest, an alum of the University of Cincinnati and the founder of PSIBERNETIX, the company that developed Alpha, the AI in question, the whole concept is that the AI can assist you in seeing and interpreting what all your sensors are telling you regarding “enemy” craft to assist in your decision making.
“I’m sure that’s the case,” TURBINE TRAINING Vice President Jason Wolcott, chuckled, “but I’m sure that Col. Gene Lee, the retired Air Force pilot that ALPHA defeated, still was a little surprised when he lost every single confrontation the two of them had.”
