Artificial intelligence has defeated chess grandmasters, Go champions, professional poker players, and, now, world-class human experts in the online strategy games Dota 2 and StarCraft II. No AI currently exists, however, that can outduel a human strapped into a fighter jet in a high-speed, high-G dogfight. As modern warfare evolves to incorporate more human-machine teaming, DARPA seeks to automate air-to-air combat, enabling reaction times at machine speeds and freeing pilots to concentrate on the larger air battle.

Webinar
DARPA will host a Proposers Day in support of recently announced BAA HR001120S0028, Air Combat Evolution (ACE) Technical Area 1 (TA-1) on March 26, 2020, via webinar from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM, Eastern Time (ET). The purpose of this Proposers Day is to provide information on TA-1 of the ACE program; promote additional discussion on this topic; address questions from potential proposers; and provide a forum for potential proposers to interact with potential teaming partners.
