The newest Russian Su-35 combat aircraft has artificial intelligence, which is responsible for independently selecting priority targets for their destruction by a certain type of weapon, said Sergei Chemezov, general director of the state corporation Rostek.
"Su-35, which flies (in the framework of the flight program Dubai Airshow 2017), there is just one of the blocks, which in fact is an artificial intelligence. That is, he analyzes all the goals he seizes, - there about six goals can simultaneously capture - and immediately determines which weapons should be hit with the target, "Chemezov said, RIA Novosti reports.
He clarified that "it's not even a pilot doing it, it's all doing artificial intelligence", adding that specialists are currently also working on the introduction of artificial intelligence in the on-board systems of civil airliners.
The multi-purpose super maneuverable Su-35 fighter on Monday for the first time participates in the flight program and in the static exposition at the Dubai Airshow 2017 airshow show in Dubai.
Chemezov also said he saw no risks to the supply of American Pratt & Whitney engines to the new Russian aircraft, MS-21.
"A contract was signed for the supply of 350 foreign engines, but I do not see any big risks here, because our engine is being tested in a flying laboratory, at the end of this part, tests will begin on the plane ... Now everyone is fulfilling the obligations and the work is proceeding according to plan, - he declared.
The first flight tests of the MS-21 aircraft took place on 28 May. The first public presentation of the newest Russian aircraft, MS-21, may take place in the middle of 2018.
