Description

When we think of robots we tend to imagine human- or animal-like machines that mimic their biological counterparts in a whole range of functions. But robots - and artificial intelligence as a whole - encompasses so much more. The use of artificial intelligence for space applications nowadays is also widespread, ranging from robots that go where no human can go, to autonomous spacecraft and swarm intelligence. But also, the way satellite images are analysed, the management of megaconstellations, and even finding extra-solar planets have been made easier by employing artificial intelligence.
