earlier this year, the design space of the International Space Station reported its new AI-powered robot CIMON, a 3D-printed plastic sphere designed to test human-machine interaction in space. CIMON is described as a “mobile and autonomous assistance system” and is designed to float around the station and help respond to astronauts’ questions. Now, in a new video loss of the European Space Agency, CIMON has successfully made its official debut of interacting with a crew member.

flying brain robot was built by airbus according to a contract awarded by the German Space Center (DLR) and using artificial intelligence software by IBM Watson. its scientific aspects are supervised by researchers at the university of ludwig maximilians in munich. It uses 12 internal fans, allowing it to move in several directions while floating in space microgravity conditions.

according to ESA, both CIMON’s developers and Alexander are pleased with their first excursion and hope that he soon will see him again No further sessions than this are planned during the horizon mission at this stage, but it can mark the beginning of exciting collaboration between astronauts, robot assistants and possible future artificial intelligence in space.
