Dr. Jeremy Frank to Give Invited Talk at Artificial Intelligence Conference & Exposition November 29th

Dr. Jeremy Frank will give an invited talk at the Artificial Intelligence Conference & Exposition (AI Expo) at the Santa Clara Convention Center on November 29th. 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. Future astronauts will need smarter tools employing AI techniques to make decisions without inefficient communication back and forth with ground-based Mission Control. In this talk, Dr. Frank will describe several demonstrations of astronaut decision-support tools using AI techniques as a foundation. These demonstrations show that astronaut tasks ranging from living and working to piloting can all benefit from AI technology development.

BACKGROUND: The Artificial Intelligence Conference & Exhibition is taking place on November 29-30 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. It will showcase the next-generation technologies and strategies from the world of artificial intelligence, providing an opportunity to explore and discover the practical and successful implementation of AI that will drive businesses forward. High-level conferences will bring together forward-thinking brands, market leaders, AI evangelists, and hot start-ups to explore and debate advancements in artificial intelligence, the impacts within the enterprise and consumer sectors, as well as development platforms and digital transformation opportunities.
