I am war plane

I knew this was coming -

http://www.popsci.com/technology/art.../i-am-warplane

I think the next big transformation for us as a civilization is to transition to autonomous transportation - both military and civilian. On the civilian side I can see insurance companies driving this change by offering lower premiums to car owners with collision avoidance and guidance systems. And on the military side, just imagine what will happen when an autonomous war plane wins an Air Force dog fight contest.

When do you think full autonomous driving will arrive for cars (I mean at retail, not a Google or college experiment)?

Re: I am war plane

A retail system might be ready for prime time as early as 2020. That's when we get to treat the early adopters like our bitches...well at least after we're sure it WILL stop or avoid us.

Wasn't this a SCI FI movie, where the plane went rouge and human pilots couldn't stop it because it was better than them.

Sounds like "Stealth". Neat movie, but I wouldn't want to be a pilot flying with a UAV with AI.
