NASA began a new research project, which plans to use artificial intelligence and a blockchain for the intelligent system of an unmanned spacecraft.
The corresponding funding for the development of the intellectual system was obtained by the University of Akron in Ohio.
I hope to develop technology that can recognize environmental threats and avoid them, as well as complete a number of tasks automatically. I am honored that NASA recognized my work, and I am excited to continue challenging technology’s ability to think and do on its own.
- said Akron Assistant Professor Jin Wei Kocsis, who will lead the research.
According to the scientists, this new intellectual system, using machine training and Ethereum blockchain system, will help the spacecraft to respond more accurately to new NASA commands and data, as well as independently make decisions.
Operational decision making by the new system will be able to keep remote objects in space from some threats, such as space debris or meteorites.
$333 thousand was allocated for research.A team of scientists from the University of Akron plans to explore decentralized computer networks that are capable of processing "a huge amount of large-scale data" that a satellite can store in deep space. Scientists will develop an AI scheme that uses "deep training methods and fuzzy logical methods."
Such technologies can be decisive for the next decades of space exploration. In particular, they will create aircraft, fly to other planetary systems or even galaxies.
Earlier, scientists loaded the "brain" of the worm into a robot, and he independently took it under control: scientists created a biologically reliable model of a neural network of a roundworm and plunged into simple work with Lego.
The NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California experimented who is running the unmanned aerial vehicle faster and better - artificial intelligence or a professional pilot.
