NASA Frontier Development Lab (FDL 2019)

The Frontier Development Lab (FDL) is a 6-week workshop to apply AI technologies to space science to push the frontiers of research and develop new tools to help solve some of the biggest challenges that humanity faces. These range from the affects of climate change to predicting space weather, from improving disaster response, to identifying meteorites that could hold the key to the history of our universe. FDL is a public-private partnership with NASA in the USA (hosted by the SETI Institute) and ESA in Europe. The FDL yearly cycle starts with challenge definition. Early in the year, we bring together some of the brightest and best minds we can find, from space science, AI and technology, and on/off-Earth applications to explore our challenge areas. FDL challenges must represent a clear and present scientific problem, for which there is available data, that could be significantly advanced by AI tools and techniques.

Our provisional challenge areas for 2019 are:

Living with Our Star
How can AI improve our ability to predict solar activity - especially energetic solar phenomena?

The Moon for Good
How might AI support the goal of establishing a permanent presence on the Moon?

Are We Alone?
Can AI help answer the question of whether we are alone in the universe?

Mission Control for Earth: Real-Time Data/Virtual Instruments
How might we utilise AI and Earth observation data to support improved decision making to protect the planet?

Astronaut Health
How can AI support medical care in space?
