AI beats champion human pilots in head-to-head drone race

An artificial intelligence has consistently beaten champion drone pilots in races for the first time, achieving lap times no human was able to match. The sport of drone racing involves humans piloting small quadcopters around a course at speeds over 100 kilometres per hour while pulling g-forces of up to 5 g. Drones must fly through a series of gates in the correct direction and order, and human pilots wear headsets streaming video captured by cameras on the drones. The Swift AI has beaten expert drone racers in high-speed races using an on-board computer that fuses artificial intelligence and classical algorithms – a method that could speed up delivery drones.
