ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN SPACE: HOW AI IS LITERALLY TAKING OVER OUR PLANET

Space exploration has been a dream of humans for centuries. In the past, we have sent humans and animals into space to explore our celestial neighborhood and this has made the idea of space exploration even more enticing and popular.

NOW ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IS TAKING OVER AS IT EXPLORES NEW WORLDS ON ITS OWN!

While artificial intelligence (AI) technology is still in its early stages, it’s already doing some incredible things that will change how we interact with space forever.


The European Space Agency has announced that they are working on a project which will use artificial intelligence to send robotic elements into space.

This project is still in its early stages but could be used for anything from exploring new planets to studying the effects of microgravity on humans.


What’s more, AI has already become increasingly important for solving problems in science, engineering, business, and many other contexts too.

SO HOW WILL AI PLAY A ROLE IN SPACE?

One thing it can help with is making sense of large amounts of data from spacecraft that are sent into deep space to study distant planets or galaxies using high-powered telescopes – all without human intervention.

ASTRONAUT ASSISTANTS

Assistive technologies can be incredibly valuable for space exploration. An AI assistant with the name Cimon was taken in December 2019 in the International Space Station(ISS). Later by carrying out the tasks that astronauts ask, Cimon will decrease the strain for astronauts.


It also announced that plans include creating a companion for astronauts aboard the Station named ROBOTA.


This companion could work alongside or work on missions that are too risky. It has been test-bed for three years at the ISS and is preparing to take a place on NASA future space missions with a purpose like decreasing stress and alerting Crew members to potential danger.

OUTLOOK

There are a large number of projects currently implementing artificial intelligence in space exploration.

HOWEVER, WE DO NEED HUMAN INTERVENTION IN EVERYTHING AN INTELLIGENT ROBOT CAN DO.

AI will be able to provide newer knowledge in exploring space through technological innovation with each invention and future research, as it will become a significant asset to humans.

AI FOR SPACE EXPLORATION

The impact of AI could influence many aspects of humans and robot exploration. The impact of AI could influence many aspects of humans and robot exploration. This includes the way we explore, how we learn about other worlds, and even what our space explorers look like. 

WITH THE ADVENT OF MACHINE LEARNING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN TODAY’S WORLD, IT IS EASY TO THINK THAT AI WILL BE ABLE TO DO ANYTHING A HUMAN CAN DO- BUT THIS IS NOT ALWAYS TRUE.

So far there are two main areas where AI has been applied in space exploration: navigation systems and autonomous science experiments. Navigation systems provide data for spacecrafts to maneuver through their environment while autonomous science experiments provides sound research for future trials.

DATA ANALYTICS IN SPACE

NASA has been collecting data about space for decades, and now they are using that data to understand our planet better.

DATA ANALYTICS IN SPACE IS HELPING US UNCOVER TRENDS AND PATTERNS OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON EARTH. 

With the increasing use of satellites, NASA will continue to be able to monitor these changes with more precision than ever before possible. 


The advancements in this field have allowed scientists to create new visualization tools.

EARTH OBSERVATION CAN’T HAPPEN WITHOUT AI IN SPACE

One of the most important parts of artificial intelligence in space is Earth observation. With this increase of knowledge and data, we will be able to understand and better protect our planet from changes in climate, pollution, natural disasters, and more.

COMPLEX TASKS ARE AIDED BY MACHINE LEARNING AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Complex tasks are aided by machine learning and artificial intelligence. The benefits of this technology come in many forms, as it can be used to make predictions about the future, increase efficiency, or even identify patterns that humans would have difficulty seeing on their own. These applications will have a significant impact on human life for years to come.

MACHINE LEARNING AND AUTOMATION ARE FACILITATING THE DEVELOPMENT OF RESILIENT SPACE SYSTEMS, WHICH ARE NO LONGER CONSTRAINED BY MANUAL INPUTS.

The development of resilient space systems is being facilitated by machine learning.


The use of algorithms in the design and testing stage can provide a more efficient process, saving time and money, while helping to avoid costly mistakes that might be made due to human error.


Machine learning algorithms are also able to run simulations on new designs for resilience before they are built, which means there is less need for expensive prototypes. 

MACHINE LEARNING IS FACILITATING THE DEVELOPMENT OF RESILIENT SPACE SYSTEMS THROUGH ITS ABILITY TO SIMULATE DESIGNS BEFORE BUILDING PROTOTYPES AND PREDICTING THE LIKELIHOOD OF SUCCESS FOR FUTURE MISSIONS.

Machine learning is not always easy to do, but artificial intelligence in space can help make important decisions.


Complex tasks are aided by artificial intelligence. The benefits of this technology come in many forms, as it can be used to make predictions about the future, increase efficiency, or even identify patterns that humans would have difficulty seeing on their own.

USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TO ANALYZE LANDSCAPE ON MARS

Artificial intelligence in space is helping to analyze the landscape of Mars, as well.


Ever since the era of space exploration began, scientists have been trying to figure out how to determine what is happening on Mars.


As we explore and study more and more about Mars, it has become clear that there are many things happening on this planet that are still unknown. Artificial intelligence in space is helping with analyzing the landscape of Mars by using satellite imagery.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SPACE DATA HELPING TO REMOVE SPACE DEBRIS

There have been reports that AI systems intend to be used to help clear up space debris at an international space station.


Analytics India Mag has reported that:

THE EUROPEAN SPACE AGENCY HAS PARTNERED WITH SWISS STARTUP CLEARSPACE TO LAUNCH ITS FIRST DEBRIS REMOVAL PROJECT IN 2025.

Space has developed artificial intelligence systems that can detect, track and de-orbit space debris.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN SPACE IS HELPING TO REMOVE SPACE DEBRIS BY USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE DATA ANALYSIS TOOLS.

The idea that space junk and space debris can be removed using AI and technology could change the way in which we interact with complex space missions.


Computer science will help us harness large amounts of data created by autonomous algorithms and NASA satellites. Thereafter, the whole idea of earth observation and space observation can help improve deep space operations and communications from astronauts in space, back to earth.


We’ve seen how AI has changed the way we interact with space. But what does that mean for you?

MORE SPECIFICALLY, WHAT DOES THIS MEAN ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND DATA ANALYTICS?

Wasn't expecting so much for the first day of a workshop. But by the end of the session I was able to create my 1st Tableau Dashboard. Learned tips for better visual presentations, Learned how to incorporate color, publish and present the dashboard. The onus is on me to recreate this now in my own environment. Pressure TALL! Great Job Incus Services!!

Thank you for the opportunity. It was an amazing journey in Data Analytics using Tableau. From the coaches I have learned how to Aggregate, Sort and Filter data putting it into a dashboard on how to solve problems using this software. As a group (2) we had to do it by ourselfs and present the data by telling our story about the data and give our findings and recommendation. It was fantastic. Thanks to everyone and especially the Coaches.
