AI has the potential to be a huge ally for astronauts on the space station as well as space travelers participating in future missions to other worlds. Eventually, groups like ESA and NASA believe that AI will be capable of running the show, so to speak, and maintaining various spacecraft systems while

SpaceX was finally able to launch its Dragon cargo spacecraft to the International Space Station this week after the initial launch was scrubbed due to poor weather conditions. The spacecraft is carrying a whole bunch of neat stuff to the ISS, including an upgraded version of an AI-powered floating robot that lost its cool when interacting with its astronaut handler.

Roughly a year ago, the CIMON robot was being tested for its ability to act as a robotic assistant for the scientists aboard the space station. It’s designed to provide information about crucial tasks, provide reminders, and offer helpful tips. Unfortunately, the first iteration of the bot that was tested in space had some emotional demons.

ESA published a video showcasing the robot doing its thing on the space station in December of last year. Things seemed to be going well, but the robot spontaneously started acting, well, bizarre. It seemed to get its “feelings” hurt, then interrogated its handler, Alexander Gerst. It accused Gerst of being “mean” and then demanded to know whether Gerst liked it or not. It was incredibly odd.

As Reutersreports, this upgraded version is also equipped with “emotion-sensing” features. Whether it’ll be as moody as the first CIMON bot remains to be seen.

“The overall goal is to really create a true companion,” lead architect of CIMON 2 told Reuters. “The relationship between an astronaut and CIMON is really important. It’s trying to understand if the astronaut is sad, is he angry, joyful and so on.”

Developers can now program the actions of Sony's robot dog Aibo

  Developers can now program the actions of Sony's robot dog Aibo Aibo, the robotic dog by Sony, recently received a software update that lets developers customize the pup's actions. For years, Sony has been developing robot dogs that have the capacity to emulate the behavior of real pups. Last year, the sixth generation of Aibo went on sale in the US complete not only with pooch mannerisms, but also with AI and cloud-connected technology. Since this launch, Aibo has become as much of a house watchdog as a companion thanks to software updates that take advantage of the device's cameras and sensors to send owners live reports of their house while they're away.
