NASA just tested the limits of artificial and human intelligence by pitting an AI-operated drone against one flown by a man.
The test was supported in part by Google-funded research and took place at an indoor track in Pasadena, CA. The drones flew at speeds of approximately 40 miles per hour. The opponents completed TK races.
To ensure the race was as evenly matched as possible, scientists enlisted pilot Ken Loo (aka FlyingBear), who participates in the International Drone Racing League.
