Human drone racing champs get demolished by an AI

Researchers at the University of Zurich have created a drone AI that was able to beat out the top human drone racers in the world (via Nature). Swift AI was able to master a course in a week, record the fastest lap times, and outperform the best drone racers from three different drone racing leagues in head-to-head races.

You might have seen drone racing on TV, an event where remote-controlled drones are flown by pilots wearing special visors with a first-person video feed from the drones’ onboard camera race through a series of LED gates. It’s chaotic, and watching little brightly colored quadcopters crash into gates never gets old.
