Agency defense advanced projects USA (DARPA) in the background of a raging pandemic coronavirus refused to hold face-to-face testing of modern fighter aircraft. Instead competition will be held AI algorithms AlphaDogfight Trials.
The competition will be held in virtual mode, and viewers can follow them online.
Management fighters will give the algorithms of artificial intelligence (AI), they will simulate a real dogfight.
Test AlphaDogfight Trials were launched by DARPA to broaden the base of developers of AI in the framework of the Evolution of Air Combat (ACE), the purpose of which is to automate air combat and confidence of the pilots to artificial intelligence in the future, they could control the plane together.
According to the researchers. the new system was able to dogfight more effectively than employees, thereby reducing the pilot’s workload and giving him time to make more accurate tactical decisions in the framework of the larger combat missions.
The second phase of the test program was conducted in January of this year. In it, the participants demonstrated more sophisticated algorithms for AI. While eight parties had submitted their algorithms, which carried out battle with the AI of the enemy. Battles were fought one-on-one and low complexity.

In the third test, will take part eight teams, they will present their neural network algorithms in tournament mode.
In the last day, the four best AI will compete for the lead in singles. The winning team will be given the opportunity to test your algorithm with the participation of live U.S. air force pilot.
