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's Dragon 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.

All six crew members at the orbiting outpost can speak to CIMON, though it has been taught to work best with Gerst.

A video provided by IBM shows CIMON conversing with Matthias Biniok, who led the development of the the space robot's AI.

This is SpaceX's 15th cargo flight to the space station under NASA's Commercial Resupply Services contract. The Dragon spacecraft is packed with more than 2,681kg of research, crew supplies and hardware, according to Nasa.

The same first-stage booster launched the planet-hunting Tess satellite in April, while the capsule flew in 2016.

CRS-15 will mark one of the final Block 4 launches as SpaceX looks forward to launching its newest version, Block 5, on a full-time basis.

Using microphones, cameras, and a battery of other sensors, the AI will be used to help Gerst carry out experiments to explore how the crystallization of materials differs in space compared to Earth, an IBM spokesperson told VentureBeat in an email.

Weather is not expected to be an issue Friday with U.S. Air Force Weather officials predicting a near ideal forecast with 90 percent "go" conditions for the instant launch window.
