This video shows a robot combat pilot. There are no
sound during parts of the video because I wanted to
show the viewers what the robot is thinking while
fighting enemy forces. The flashing text and freeze
frames are the internal thoughts of the robot and not
instruction text for the viewers. These internal
thoughts describe the details of how the robot
My robot doesn't use:
planning programs/heuristic searches (used by MIT and Stanford University),
Bayesian's probability theories for decision making, Bayesian's equation for
induction and deduction, semantic networks for natural language
understanding, predicate calculus, common sense systems, first-order logic,
rule-based systems, genetic programming, or MACHINE LEARNING.
This robot combat
pilot was given a mission to fly 8 miles from the aircraft carrier and
destroy an enemy base. During the navigation, enemy planes were encountered
and the robot and his co-pilot has to work together to destroy enemy forces.
There are several
interruptions during the mission. One of the ally planes was shot down and
the robot's plane survived the air battle. However, the robot's plane
sustained a hit to one of the engines. After accessing the situation, the
robot thinks he can still accomplish the mission. All he needs to do is
navigate to the enemy base and drop a few bombs. The plane can still fly
with one engine.
It is very important
for the robot to solve interruptions when they occur. Despite the damage to
his plane, he knows the plane can still fly and there is no need to abort
