Still not replaced by an AI yet

Thought it was a good idea to find out if we have been made redundant and outperformed by AI yet.

We’re still OK for now
But cool images

[Aprils fool…] Well. This week i asked ChatGPT to write me a code to cap the tether tension at 7500 N during production. I also fed it with some of our flight data. The new ChatGPT v4 does calculations also now. So the code it produced was looking a bit weird, but also weirdly close to something that could work. So we decided to enable that controller for a few seconds. And what do you know; the tether tension was not capped exactly, but it was indeed working better than my own «naive» implementation. And it only took like 5 minutes to get there. So big success I guess. I have been fighting this because I felt AI couldn’t write proper sensible code. But after this I am maybe thinking sometime soon, «if you cant beat them, join them». I plan to present this at the next AWEC. Really stoked today [Aprils fool…]


Later, maybe it kills us all…

Write to us like John Milton in heroic verse about the virtues of airborne wind energy.

Hail, noble seeker of knowledge, pray lend thine ear To hear a tale of wondrous invention here Of Wind and Air, those elements so fair, And how they may be harnessed with utmost care.

Behold, Airborne Wind Energy, a mighty force, That shall sustain us in our earthly course. With kites and turbines soaring high in the sky, We shall reap the winds and nevermore rely

On coal and oil, those fuels of yesteryear, Whose fumes and smoke did foul the atmosphere. Instead, we look to Air, that gentle breeze, And harness it with grace and with great ease.

Oh, what a sight to see those kites aloft, Dancing and soaring, never once aught. The winds doth blow and fill their sails so high, And down below, we smile and heave a sigh.

For this is progress, this is innovation, A means to power our world, without hesitation. And in the wake of such noble endeavor, We shall leave a cleaner, brighter world forever.

So let us raise our voice in joy and praise, To Airborne Wind Energy, this wondrous phase. May it flourish and grow, and spread its wings, And bring forth a world of new beginnings.
