Challenge Team Abstract
Artificial intelligence, although initially thought to be a fanciful representation of scientific concepts with little basis in fact, has been validated and its theories affirmed through the research and analysis of the logical foundations of its principles. Modern interpretations of the artificial intelligence theory have led scientific theorists to begin to accept the feasibility of ideas formerly thought to reside only in the realm of science fiction, such as advanced computerized decision making. In attempting this project, our group is undertaking the investigation and simulation of the concepts involving advanced computerized decision making.
The goal of this project is to create a sophisticated computerized artificial intelligence system that enables the computer to think logically and formulate the best strategy for accomplishing a task. The computer will both make "educated guesses" in-simulation based on it's likelihood for a successful outcome, and compares this to previous attempts at success, so that the computer can successfully formulate the most effective strategy possible in a real time environment. This will empower the computer to think in the same general manner a human does in order to, in the most effective way possible, determine the best method for completing its function.
The environment, in which this simulation would be conducted, is drafted from the avionics dog fight. The computer would be responsible, taking knowledge of enemy positions and previous failures/successes, and, using logical paths, decide both immediate decisions and a strategy for winning the simulation. The AI would decide the best method for flight, whereby subsequently positioning the plane behind the enemy so as to effect a kill. Using a series of "evaluators", the AI would determine the effectiveness of an action, log it, and refer to it ot make the next decision. Eventually, two "intelligent" AI's will be pitted against each other in the simulation to test their interactions with each other.
