SpaceX Is Transporting AI Support Robot CIMON to ISS

Dragon is scheduled to depart the station in August and return to Earth with more than 3,800 pounds of research, hardware and crew supplies. The Crew Interactive Mobile CompanioN (CIMON) is designed to help astronauts with their jobs and to create a feeling of talking to a crew mate, and playing with a Rubik cube. Measuring 32cm across and tipping the scales at 5kg, it's essentially astronauts' flight attendant and assistance system. It also has an on-screen face that can seemingly change its expression, a feature Airbus hopes will make CIMON seem like a genuine "colleague" to ISS astronauts.

It can even search for objects and document experiments, according to the German Aerospace Center (DLR).

CIMON will deploy a range of IBM Watson artificial intelligence, including computer vision and various forms of natural language processing.

Currently, astronauts read these instructions from a laptop, which Mr. Biniok says is an arduous process that a responsive, hands-free companion like CIMON can replace.

Interaction between astronauts on the Horizons mission aboard the ISS will be used by Airbus and IBM to continue to improve how CIMON operates and assists humans in space.

"We have implemented this experiment in a very short time".

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, the final Block 4 version of the launch vehicle to be launched, lifted of from the Cape's Space Launch Complex 40 on a mission to resupply the International Space Station (ISS) on Friday, June 29, 2018.

CIMON is able to answer voice commands and can research a database of information about the ISS.

"CIMON has no come-back date as of yet", Biniok said.

Dragon will fly with almost 6,000 pounds of cargo, supplies and science experiments as part of the 15th of 20 missions under a contract between SpaceX and NASA's Commercial Resupply Services program, also known as CRS-15. It's slated to reach the station on Monday, July 2.

About 10 minutes later, SpaceX's Twitter account confirmed Dragon was "in good orbit".

The Dragon capsule which will dock Monday with the Space Station and deliver almost 6,000 pounds of supplies to the astronauts orbiting Earth - including some very strong coffee - has previously flown too.
