A chatbot’s guide to the galaxy

CIMON – the first chatbot in space!


Free webinar in English

Tuesday November 16, 2021 at 6pm CET

Until recently, A.I. robots in space seemed to belong to the realm of science fiction. But a collaboration project between DLR, Airbus, LMU and IBM set off in 2016 to make Marvin and HAL9000 a reality. Albeit less depressed and less intent on killing its users.

CIMON, the Crew Interactive Mobile Companion, is a voice-controlled robot on the ISS which can assist the crew with their experiments, provide valuable and quick assistance thanks to its cloud-based database in a wide array of technical subjects or even joke with them or play their favourite music.

Sophie Richter-Mendau, Nina Fischer and Matthias Biniok were all part of this one and first of a kind project. During this event they gave us some insights into the tasks and experiments conducted by CIMON, as well as its AI and Voice components, its personality and what the future holds for such assistants.
