How artificial intelligence helps us explore the solar system

Let’s be honest, it’s much easier for robots to explore space than it is for us humans. Robots don’t need fresh air and water, or carrying a bunch of food to stay alive. However, they require humans to lead them and make decisions. Advances in machine learning technology could change that, making computers a more active collaborator in planetary science.

Last week at the 2022 Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), planetary scientists and astronomers discussed how new machine learning techniques are changing the way we learn about our planet. solar systemplanning for future mission landings on Jupiter’s icy moon Europe to identify volcanoes on tiny Mercury.
