Powered with voice-assisted AI, CIMON can even remember and identify astronauts in the space station. It is a ball shaped, floating, AI based robot which is launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida.
A ball-shaped artificial intelligence robot nicknamed the "flying brain" because it is trained to follow and interact with a German astronaut blasted off today toward the International Space Station aboard SpaceX'sDragon cargo ship. In a medical emergency, no one will want to wait 20 minutes for a call for help to reach Earth and then another 20 minutes for advice to get back to the stricken crew, said NASA's space station program manager Kirk Shireman. "It is meant to show to what extent the astronauts' work can be supported in the European Columbus module on the ISS and relieve them, in particular, of routine tasks", said Christian Karrasch, CIMON Project Manager at the DLR Space Administration.
To be honest, we find it more exciting than scary and we're sure the astronauts on board the space station will find his company interesting and useful.
