INDIA: With his team of four other students from the same university, an Indian student enrolled at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore has created a machine learning software. It is said that this programme will be sent to the International Space Station (ISS).
The International Space Station (ISS) is a modular space station (habitable artificial satellite) in low Earth orbit. It is an international collaborative project involving five participating space agencies: NASA (United States), Roscosmos (Russia), JAXA (Japan), ESA (Europe), and CSA (Canada).
A recent challenge on finding novel uses for artificial intelligence in space applications was won by Archit Gupta’s team. His team was able to test its software at the International Space Station thanks to this accomplishment (ISS).
The programme will be loaded into a supercomputer, or artificial intelligence box, before being transported up to the International Space Station.
The Indian student, who is enrolled in his second year of study, recently stated in an interview that the International Space Station collects experimental data and that the experiment would be useless if the data’s sanctity were to be violated.
Gupta is only 20 years old, but his machine learning programme, called Cremer, will have a crucial job to undertake in evaluating whether there will be any hardware issues on the satellite or the International Space Station. It is being sent to the space station by Archit Gupta’s programme since these hardware malfunctions lead to spacecraft crashes and could have been anticipated earlier.
Archit Gupta created this ground-breaking machine learning software in collaboration with Deaon Lim, Rashna Ahmed, and Sim See Min. According to Gupta, they chose the name “Cremer” for their software because they wished to create a better version of the currently available Creme programme.
