Machine Learning Developed in Space

We have used computers in space for a long term, now a continuation of developing code there.

Raspberry Pi Heading into Space for Python Programming Challenge

ZDNet, Liam Tung, September 14, 2021

Upgraded Raspberry Pi computers will return to the International Space Station (ISS) for use in what the European Space Agency (ESA) calls the Mission Zero and Mission Space Lab challenges. Mission Zero invites coders to write a Python algorithm to take a humidity reading onboard the ISS that is shown to the astronauts with a personalized message. ESA said Mission Space Lab challenges teams of young people "to design and write a program for a scientific experiment that enhances our understanding of either life on Earth or life in space." The new Astro Pi units are Raspberry Pi 4 Model B featuring 8 GB of memory, a camera, a machine learning accelerator, sensors, gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer, and a light-emitting diode matrix for visual feedback. ESA said the accelerator will allow teams "to develop machine learning models enabling high-speed, real-time processing."
