Abstract: NASA’s space missions have captured the imagination of those around the world for generations. From the International Space Station to Artemis, there is a need for HPC, data movement, analytics, and AI capabilities delivered as efficient pipelines. For example future missions, such as the Dragonfly mission to Titan and other icy moon missions may require AI at the extreme edge – with planned data flows to the core. Demand is skyrocketing with use cases spanning operational decision-making at the edge, ensuring the health and safety of our astronauts, and advancing scientific discovery. In fact, this edge case ability, with AI/ML, is changing the business models for the evolving space and climate economies and the way we architect HPC systems. Hear from and engage with our panel of experts about how recent missions have expanded our concept of computing at the edge – for both space-based and terrestrial challenges.
