Brian Thomas, a data scientist at NASA and program manager for Open Innovation, said the space agency is looking to advance the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning in aeronautics, human capital, information technology support and operations, Federal Times reported Friday. Thomas said on Wednesday that NASA plans to use AI and ML technologies to help with antenna positioning operations in order to facilitate contact with satellites during the AI World Government Conference.

He discussed how NASA could leverage such technologies in workforce management. “Can we look at our position descriptions and analyze those using text analytics and try to classify that out and then make predictions about what we need to do or where our workforce is at,” he said.

Thomas also discussed how the agency addressed challenges related to data collection and processing and the potential use of AI and ML in preventing network intrusions.
