This paper reports the authors' ongoing experience with a system for discovering novel fighter combat maneuvers, using a genetics-based machine learning process, and combat simulation. In effect, the genetic learning system in this application is taking the place of a test pilot, in discovering complex maneuvers from experience. The goal of this work is distinct from that of many other studies, in that innovation, and discovery of novelty, is, in itself valuable. This makes the details of aims… CONTINUE READING
