AI on its way to replacing humans in hypersonic weapon design: Chinese study

  • Veteran hypersonic weapons adviser leads research on an artificial intelligence system that trains itself to better analyse wind tunnel experiments
  • In China, as hypersonic research advances to Mach 8 and above, the amount of experimental data to be processed and analysed has risen significantly, says team
