Will the United States Air Force integrate an autonomous, AI-controlled fighter jet, like Lockheed's VISTA X-62, into their active service fleet by 2040?

VISTA X-62A, a one-of-a-kind training aircraft, was flown by an artificial intelligence agent for more than 17 hours recently, representing the first time AI engaged on a tactical aircraft.

For the purposes of this market, "fleet" refers to the operational aircraft used by the United States Air Force for their day-to-day missions and activities, not including aircraft that are still in development or testing phases.

The decision to integrate such aircraft into the Air Force's active service fleet must be publicly announced and confirmed by an official representative of the United States government or the United States Air Force.

If by the year 2040, the United States Air Force has not officially announced and confirmed the integration of fully autonomous AI-controlled fighter jets into their active service fleet, the resolution will be "No". If such an announcement is made by the deadline, the resolution will be "Yes".

I would say I moderately agree with the current probability of 60.85%. The integration of autonomous, AI-controlled fighter jets like Lockheed's VISTA X-62 into the United States Air Force's active service fleet by 2040 is feasible considering the advancements in AI and aerospace technology over the years. However, there is still a degree of uncertainty around the exact timeline and the adoption of such technologies by institutions like the Air Force, raising some doubt about the likelihood of integration by 2040.

Taking into account that there's almost two decades to reach the year 2040, and the constant acceleration in technological advancements related to AI and military applications, it's likely that progress towards AI-controlled aircraft will be made. That being said, there still might be some reluctancy and regulatory barriers to overcome before fully integrating autonomous systems into day-to-day military operations.

Based on the current probability of 60.85% and my own estimation of a moderately higher likelihood of integration by 2040, I will place a bet to increase my confidence level:
