AI test to detect damage to Astronaut Equipment onboard ISS with NASA, HPE, Microsoft

Using Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, NASA and Microsoft created a computer vision application that identifies the condition of the space gloves. Once trained in the cloud, the app was deployed to the HPE Spaceborne Computer-2, an AI-enabled software & hardware platform, aboard the International Space Station, and then operated at the ultimate edge enabling both local and remote analysis of the glove conditions This test could pave the way towards increased autonomy onboard spacecraft, contributing to NASA’s effort to test and develop new technology and techniques to support astronauts as it sets its sights on future missions to the moon and Mars.
