    At about the 1:00 minute mark it looks like one wireframe just kicked another wireframe's ass. :D

    It's a neat concept of passive modulation but looks easy to defeat with simple RF countermeasures. The 'Deep Learned' AI classifier is a powerful tool but as we are coming to realize with real-world applications it's easy to fool with simple adverse patterns. You can break it by slightly changing the problem in ways that humans find hard to detect but generate a completely different computer solution much like how optical illusions fool our perception of objects. It's like engineering bridges before physics, we still have no idea what's really happening with human intelligence but we can make massive structures that look impressive by adding pillars or a million pictures of RF patterns.

    Not quite:

    From the 1952 TV series....
    "Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!.....who can change the course of mighty rivers, bend steel in his bare hands....fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice and the American way." [no mention of his status as an illegal alien].

    But deep learning need not be invoked since, upon his creation in 1939, the scientific explanation of his strength was given...(Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman #1, 1939 )


    As time went on, however, we learned that he had many more super powers:
    including the much envied super-ventriloquism - HAH, I'd like to see AI duplicate that!
