It is known that there is no GPS navigation system in outer space, so if an astronaut is lost on the moon or on Mars, they may not know the directions at the end, which prompted the US space agency “NASA” to cooperate with Intel through the development of artificial intelligence system Able to solve this problem and find directions in space. NASA develops AI technology to learn about directions in space.
The Dutch National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NDW) recently completed its 8-week summer program, which included nine teams working to solve the basic problems of space travel and extraterrestrial colonization. Specific knowledge gaps using AI techniques.
The program covered the search for extraneous planets, sent a probe to observe the sun closely, and other topics of interest to current and future astronauts. Two presentations within the training program focused on the problem of extraterrestrial navigation for both humans and robots, and how we can finally address them using modern deep learning techniques.
The first has to deal with the problem of positioning on the moon, where it is relatively easy to know where you are on the ground using an old map or application, or GPS, or search for visual features, or go one way to get to the water, or ask Someone about directions, it’s different on the moon, where everything on the level of the moon seems similar.
Bahawin Andrew Chung, Philip Ludwig, Ross Potter and Benjamin developed a system to simulate the lunar surface and compare simulations to the local environment. They teach AI what the moon looks like by feeding millions of images and then using a neural network to create a virtual moon.
In theory, a person standing on the moon will be able to know his position by taking pictures of his surrounding environment, and compare AI between real images and simulations, while the second team is working on the problem of building rules for the inhabitants of the Earth on any other planet or moon.
NASA recently announced that they have discovered ICE on Moon. Yes, we agree, this might not be a big thing as no one is colonizing or currently living on Moon but for future generations, NASA develops AI technology to learn about directions in space will be greatly helpful for them.
