Jeremy Yagle, technical lead of the data science team at NASAâs office of the chief information officer,Â has said the agency has accelerated searches on space-related studies through the adoption of text analytics tools developed through six years of experimentation with artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies, Federal News Radio reported Monday.
âItâs not uncommon for somebody whoâs worked at NASA for decadesÂ to have upwards of 10,000 or 20,000 papers on their personal computer,â Yagle said Thursday at IBMâs Think Gov conference in Washington.
âTo be able to look at that really quickly takes time, and some of these new technologies reduce that time, and therefore save time for scientists to do what they really do best.â
He noted about NASAâs plan to build a âSiri on steroidsâÂ designed to handle complex mathematical problems and the agencyâs goal to improve data management through the development of AI applications.
âWe need to build a knowledge base. â¦ We actually need to know that data is, how to pool that data out, how to connect it with other data sets,â Yagle added.
