Historic Flight: Air Force Leader Takes Ride in AI-Powered Fighter Jet

An experimental orange and white F-16 fighter jet controlled by artificial intelligence, not a human pilot, engaged in aerial combat at Edwards Air Force Base. The Air Force plans for an AI-enabled fleet of more than 1,000 unmanned warplanes by 2028 to enhance security and strategic capability. Despite concerns about AI making autonomous life-and-death decisions, there will always be human oversight when weapons are used. The shift to AI-enabled planes is driven by security, cost, and strategic factors, with the goal of countering potential threats from countries like China. Training AI agents in real-world scenarios is crucial for their development and success in air combat.
