The man was stronger artificial intelligence in the race for drones

drone Dutch team MAVLab

In September 2018 we are told that the creators of League racing drone Drone Racing League want where aircraft will be controlled by artificial intelligence. To attract the attention of the developers, they took advantage of the support of the aerospace company Lockheed Martin and the collaboration finally came to fruition. Recently the race was attended by one of the best pilots in this area — Swiss by the name of Gabriel Kocher. His opponent was the drone under the control of artificial intelligence developed by a team of MAVLab. As it turned out, the computers have not so quick and smart, to control the vehicle at high speeds.

According to the publication , the race between man and artificial intelligence was held in the U.S. state of Texas. First, unmanned drones, computer controlled, competed among themselves: the teams were given the task to develop drones with Nvidia Xavier, a set of four cameras and artificial intelligence. The winner of the competition of artificial intelligence was the drone of the Dutch team MAVLab and he later became a rival of one of the world's best pilots, Gabriel Kocher.

Gabriel Kocher is one of the best in the world of drone pilots.

Who is better — man or an artificial intelligence?

The Race was held indoors in Texas Austin. The pilot's head, as always, was wearing FPV goggles that show the image with a camera drone in real time. He had once again to showcase your developed vestibular apparatus, because the race track was full of sharp turns and various obstacles. The length of the route not reported, but it is unlikely to have reached at least a kilometer in length, because the driver has finished after 6 seconds after launch. The drone of the MAVLab team under the control of artificial intelligence, in turn, reached the finish line in 12 seconds. That is, a victory in this race won people.

The article 2018, which we mentioned at the beginning of the article, we already wrote that the drones with artificial intelligence is unlikely to be quicker and faster than manually operated machines. Past contest is a great proof of that. However, the organizers of the racing Drone Racing League believe that the computer can beat the human race in the next 3 years. According to Steve Wright, who is a researcher at the aviation University of the West of England, drones will be continuously improved. Just ten years ago to control drones would require a huge processor that would be much warming up. Now for this purpose, the chips the size of a playing card.

Did the rider Gabriel Kocher, any prize for winning on artificial intelligence, is still unknown. But the MAVLab team got the consolation prize of a million dollars for having developed the fastest drone in the racing season of 2019. he shared that they intend to use the money to improve its drone and . Who knows, maybe next year their drone will finally be stronger than a drone under human control?
