Why artificial intelligence development on Earth matters right now
Krystain Gebis has lofty goals for the use of artificial intelligence when it comes to space exploration.
As the founder of Autobon AI, he has started building a company geared to drive autonomy of cold chain logistics.
This can be relevant to the space industry as the space environment is unforgivingly cold.
Autobon AI is working to automate the terrestrial freight process first, but the company’s goal is not the full autonomy of vehicles.
It wants to use computers to streamline the process of cold chain logistics first.
This means setting up AI technology to run fleet operations in order to produce self-driving trucks.
Gebis says their challenges lie in customer adaptability; most people are willing to move slowly so they need time to adjust to the technological changes.
The AI technology needs to be streamlined and as close to perfect as possible before taking it into orbit, where consequences of failure are more drastic and costly.
