INTRODUCTION

While the full use of technologies to support space missions is in its infancy, there are already many applications – including autonomous ‘rovers’, surveillance drones, and 3D-printing of spare parts and customized surgical instruments. NASA is preparing a robot to assist the astronauts. (Maybe it will eventually be used for external maintenance.) To be honest, this page is not relevant to our main theme of job loss (we are decades away from adding a Star Trek Data to a team of astronauts), but is included for general interest.

AI-fortified robot will build first homes for humans on Mars (Robotics - 2018-01 - Wired.com)

For the past decade, German space agency DLR has been refining a humanoid bot, ‘Justin’, to build the first Martian habitat for humans. Justin can handle tools, shoot and upload photos, catch flying objects, and navigate obstacles – and now, using a new AI upgrade, Justin can think for itself to perform complex tasks, including cleaning and maintaining machinery, inspecting equipment, and carrying objects.
