Jeremy Frank to Present on Artificial Intelligence in Space Exploration at the Upcoming NATO Meeting on Autonomy

Jeremy Frank will present “Artificial Intelligence: Powering Human Spaceflight Exploration of the Moon and Mars“ at the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) meeting: Autonomy from a System Perspective - Version 2. The meeting will take place May 24-26.

BACKGROUND: For over 50 years NASA's crewed missions have been confined to the Earth-Moon system, where speed-of-light communications delays between crew and ground are practically nonexistent. This ground-centered mode of operations, with a large, ground-based support team, is not sustainable for NASA’s future human exploration missions to Mars and other more distant locations in the solar system. Future astronauts will need smarter tools employing Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to make decisions without inefficient communication back and forth with ground-based mission control. The Autonomous Systems and Operations (ASO) project develops advanced technology for use on Orion to enable Exploration missions as part of the Artemis program.
