NASA Curiosity Rover is using AI to pick target on Mars

After nearly four years of deployment, the Curiosity rover mission launched by NASA is reportedly making scientific decisions on its own with the help of AEGIS software. According to reports, the Martian explorer integrated with the Curiosity rover mission currently fetches few rock targets to collide with the laser on its ChemCam instrument with the assistance from AEGIS. Commenting on the discovery, a NASA spokesperson revealed that a new software upgrade codenamed as AEGIS enables the rover to make important decisions on its own. However, this transition happens when Mars is out of sync with Curiosity’s platform at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and will deliver more data in less time. Furthermore, this is the first time a robot has been able to pick relevant science related targets on their own…
