AI Fighter Pilot Wins In Combat Simulation

Does anyone remember who the game developer was that said, and I'm paraphrasing, "developing AI that can beat you every time is easy, dumbing AI down so that it misses sometimes is what makes it more realistic." I think that applies in this situation.

An artificially intelligent fighter pilot system has defeated two attacking jets in a combat simulation. The AI, known as Alpha, used four virtual jets to successfully defend a coastline against two attacking aircraft - and did not suffer any losses. Alpha, which was developed by a US team, also triumphed in simulation against a retired human fighter pilot.
