Artificial Intelligence in Space: Are Intelligent Space Objects the Promise of the Future?

Intelligent space objects seemingly offer a promising future. They can be deployed as rovers and probes for assessing real-time data, used as on-orbit servicing robots, monitor terrestrial disasters and refugee migration through imagery analysis, enhance planetary protection, and assist in navigating through and the remediation of debris. Multi-disciplinary issues follow, from law, public policy, ethics, engineering, cybersecurity, national security, planetary protection, among others. In addition to the vital role machine intelligence will play in space based ventures, one related area of focus is how much autonomy, if any, intelligent space objects should have and what decisions necessitate human oversight.
