AI Robotic Racing

Lockheed Martin, NVIDIA, and the Drone Racing League have partnered to create AIRR: Artificial Intelligence Robotic Racing.

The gist seems to be that the top team to build an autonomous racing drone will win $1 million, and there is an addition $250,000 available to whoever can first beat a human drone pilot in a race.

I had not known about the Drone Racing League, but the videos look pretty cool.

As a person without much hand-eye coordination, it kind of blows my mind that pilots can navigate these types of environments.

On the other hand, as a person with limited hand-eye coordination, it seems like computers would be much better at this than me. Maybe than everybody?
