There is no longer any news about how pervasive artificial intelligence (AI) has grown in our daily lives, changing how we work, communicate, navigate, and pace many sectors in recent years.

Understanding this emergence, the United States of America’s National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is now considering creating a machine learning ChatGPT-like AI for assisting astronauts.

“The idea is to get to a point where we have conversational interactions with space vehicles and they [are] also talking back to us on alerts, interesting findings they see in the solar system and beyond,” said Dr. Larissa Suzuki, speaking at an IEEE meeting on next-gen space communication. “It’s really not like science fiction anymore.”

According to the agency, the equipment will be installed by NASA on the Lunar Gateway, a space station that will orbit the Moon and support the Artemis mission. Astronauts could ask questions about experiments or perform maneuvers using a natural language interface rather than poring over dense manuals.

NASA stated that it would require AI and machine learning technology to operate various systems when it is unoccupied on a dedicated page asking for small business cooperation for Lunar Gateway. These include prioritizing data transmission, autonomous operations, science payload autonomy, gateway health monitoring, and more.

As it stands, the name and further details of machine learning are yet to be revealed. But Suzuki, for example, described a case in which the system would automatically correct data transmission hiccups and inefficiencies as well as other kinds of digital breakdowns. When a spacecraft goes offline or its software malfunctions in any other way.
