HPE and Microsoft to integrate AI technology to ISS

Microsoft Y HPE come together to integrate artificial intelligence (AI) technology into International Space Station (EEI) through the cloud computing platform Azure Space Microsoft and computer Spaceborne Computer-2, developed by Hewlett-Packard Enterprise.

Next February 20 the cargo ship Northrop Grumman Cygnuslaunched by an Antares rocket, it will carry the new Spaceborne Computer-2 computer that will also deliver tons of other supplies, experiments and food for the station’s Expedition 64 astronauts. The Cygnus NG-15 cargo mission will take off from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Virginia.

HPE Spaceborne Computer-2

This computer is based on the system Edgeline Converged EL4000 Edge HPE and server HPE ProLiant DL360. This computer can receive and process data from a wide variety of devices, including satellites and cameras.

Spaceborne Computer-2 integrates graphics processing units (GPUs) to efficiently process image-intensive data, which requires higher image resolution. GPUs are also used in specific projects that use artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques.

This computer also allows you to eliminate longer latency and wait times, all associated with sending data to and from Earth. This enables astronauts to immediately tackle research and obtain information for a wide variety of projects.

According to a joint statement from Microsoft Y HPESome of the projects of researchers from around the world that will tackle with this computer are the cultivation of plants in space, the modeling of dust storms on Earth, which may help with the planning of the future mission to the planet Mars, analysis of lightning strike patterns that trigger forest fires and perform medical ultrasound imaging for the health care of astronauts working in the International Space Station.

In projects such as those named in the previous paragraph, AI and especially machine learning, fulfill a very important mission and allow the Spaceborne Computer-2 computer to make decisions based on the data it receives. In addition, this AI technology can perform data tasks that are repetitive, so that astronauts do not have to deal with this at all times and have more time to concentrate on other tasks.
