Despite the fact that the original CIMON went rogue and stopped jobs in the year 2018, a second robot with artificial intelligence, known as CIMON-2, makes its way in the direction of the International space station.

CIMON-2 used IBM-Watson-system for its artificial intelligence, sporting some notable upgrades over the last edition, including the ability to “a caring companion” and evaluate the emotions. It was/Airbus on behalf of the German space Agency DLR, with the financing of the project.

“CIMON-2 includes more sensitive microphones, a more robust Computer, and IBM Watson tone Analyzer technology, which uses linguistic analysis to detect the emotion of the tone of a conversation,” IBM wrote in a blog post. “As the original CIMON, CIMON-2 will maneuver with a dozen of internal rotors, seemingly weightless, nodding or shaking the head, when you hear, and follow an astronaut self-employed or at command.”

the use of the sound-Analyzer, CIMON-2 was able to know if an astronaut had difficulty with a task and offer help or the promotion.

Initially, there were fears that CIMON (Crew could Interactive Mobile companion), HAL-9000 from “2001: A Space Odyssey”. But IBM is said Matthias Biniok, it was a successful mission, even if CIMON-1 ignored Gerst, some of the requests of ESA astronaut Alexander.

“CIMON-1 had liked a very successful mission, and the astronauts to work with him,” Biniok, IBM project manager at Watson-AI, said in an E-Mail to Fox News. “of course there were some things that didn’t go as expected. For example, was CIMON, the switch to the “crew-mode’ successful to a point and listen to the crew. He tried to understand what the astronauts are assigned in the talking about and this conversation is a question about lunch. This is not an ‘AI-magic, it is only a training error in the supervised machine learning algorithm.”

“CIMON lets just say things were formed, and he has no self-learning functions,” Biniok added. “So, these fears are derived from the science-fiction movies, and CIMON, the actions are always explainable.” CIMON-1 reached the International space station last summer.

Similar in shape to CIMON-1 with a spherical shape, a slight smile, and the ability to you move around the ISS, CIMON-2 on the floating laboratory “for up to three years,” Biniok indicated. in Addition, CIMON-2 was able to/with the aid of putting AI in the cloud for future space flights, the astronauts almost unlimited knowledge and data.

“a trip to the moon or Mars, the crew would be able to get to an AI-based help service, without a permanent data connection to the earth,” said Christian Karrasch, CIMON project manager with DLR, included in the blog post.

CIMON-2 lifted off on a SpaceX Dragon cargo capsule on Dec. 5. from Cape Canaveral, Fla.
