QUOTE: "And if scientists can decipher the ground rules of how such neural networks function, the research also may result in novel computing systems that could tackle dangerous search-and-rescue jobs...."

YEAH RIGHT, i wouldn't want a "neural network" flying SAR to save my **** in 70kt winds with 35 foot swells 150 miles offshore in a sinking boat. Send out the boys who have the training.

I love how scientists constantly try to find ways to "remove pilots from dangerous situations."

My Dad flew SAR for 20 years for the CAF out of Gander Newfoundland Canada, saving people in the middle of the ocean. HE LOVED IT. Why can't scientists understand this? If we don't stop this **** NOW then in 20 years there wont be any pilot jobs for me, you OR our grandchildren..

Some of us are luky enough to be able to afford to BUY/RENT aircraft to fly. But the vast majority of us WORK commercially or militarilly as a pilot to experience the joy of flight. If this keeps up, there won't be JOBS in the industry.

But like I said before, I don't think it will catch on because i don't feel safe with computer controlled aircraft.

next thing you know we'll have computer controlled tanks aircraft guns exoskeletons. CAN YOU SAY TERMINATOR!?!?!?!?>!?!?!

EDIT: IKNOW that everything is computer controlled now... you know what i mean. Trolls! lol

If they are anything like my pet rats I wouldn't trust them with anything pointy or explosive. They'd be strafing the cats in the town and taking over the Tillamook Cheese factory.

Hmm somehow seeing rats as sar pilots is maybe a novum .)

How do I wire ratty into PF's AI?

Pretty old news. Sort of funny and ethically disgusting at the same time.
