原文:

In a 5 to 0 sweep, an AI 'pilot' developed by Heron Systems beat one of the Air Force's top F-16 fighter pilots in DARPA's simulated aerial dogfight contest taking place from Aug. 18-20, 2020.

AI still has a long way to go before the Air Force pilots would be ready to hand over the stick to an artificial intelligence during combat, said DARPA officials. But the three-day trials show that AI systems can credibly maneuver an aircraft in a simple, one-on-one combat scenario and shoot its forward guns in a classic, WWII-style dogfight. It was an impressive showing by an AI agent after only a year of development.

中譯:

美國「國防先進研究計畫局」於2020年8月18至20日舉辦的模擬空戰競賽,由「蒼鷺系統」所開發的人工智慧飛行員,擊敗F-16戰機其中一名頂尖飛行員,以直落五大獲全勝。

該機構官員表示,美國空軍飛行員在準備將空戰的重任交付給人工智慧(AI)之前,AI仍有好一段長路要走。但由這三天來的試驗可知,在簡單、一對一的戰鬥模擬情境中,AI系統可以穩當地操控飛機,並以前置機砲,實施風靡於二戰的空中格鬥。AI代理飛行員僅經過一年的研發就展現如此成果,著實令人佩服。

例句:

It is important to maneuver the vessel while considering the rounding up leeway angle when navigating in a channel without the assistance of tugs under wind pressure.
