If you had a chance to go to the open space, what would you take with you? A Polaroid photo with friends or a book by Herbert Wells (to know how to meet the Martians)? NASA decided to take Alexa!
AI to the Moon and back
Alexa, Amazon’s voice assistant will be part of Callisto, a technology demonstration payload embedded into NASA’s Orion spacecraft for the Artemis I mission.
Alexa will have the access to the whole spacecraft’s system in order to monitor different indices and answer crew’s questions and request. For example, Alexa can tell the temperature on board or turn on the light.
AI will also receive the data from the Earth — from political news to sport results. In future, this will help astronauts stay in touch with their home.
Artemis I won’t have a crew, all the management will be done remotely from the mission control center. Everything that happens aboard the spacecraft will be recorded and sent back to Earth, where engineers will analyze the data and improve technology for future missions.
While Alexa is searching for new civilisations in space for us to add their languages, we solve your marketing and localisation tasks here on the Earth — providing you with the highly qualified translation and voice-over.
