What is Artificial Intelligence?
Artificial intelligence (AI) is an area of
computer science that emphasizes the
creation of intelligent machines that
work and react like humans. Some of
the activities computers with artificial
intelligence are designed for include:
Speech recognition
Problem solving
Space Exploration
Space exploration is the physical exploration
of outer space, both by human spaceflights
and by robotic spacecraft.
It was the development of large liquidfueled rocket engines during the early 20th
century that allowed space exploration to
become a practical possibility.
Common rationales for exploring space
include: advancing scientific research,
uniting different nations and ensuring the
future survival of humanity.
Artificial Intelligence and Space
Applications of this AI – i.e., technological
devices, which consciously and
autonomously interact with their
environment – already play a vital role in
contemporary space exploration.
In the future, the complexity of missions will
continue to increase, and with it the
demands placed on artificially intelligence
space probes, maintenance systems, and
mobile reconnaissance units.
Applications of AI in Space Exploration
Mobile reconnaissance units such as the
Mars Explorer are a textbook example of the
application of artificial intelligence in space.
Space probes are at least partially
dependent on artificial intelligence when
investigating such distant targets.
Their missions are not just limited to
navigation and the proper use of the various
measuring instruments.
