Welcome to the very first episode of AI in Action, the podcast that breaks down the hype and explores the impact that Data Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are making on our everyday lives.

Powered by Alldus International, our goal is to share with you the insights of technologists and data science enthusiasts to showcase the excellent work that is being done within AI across the world.

Today’s guest is Jordan Evans, Deputy Director for Engineering and Science at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab in Los Angeles which is a national research facility that carries out robotic space and Earth science missions.

JPL helped open the Space Age by developing America’s first Earth-orbiting science satellite, creating the first successful interplanetary spacecraft, and sending robotic missions to study all the planets in the solar system as well as asteroids, comets and the Earth’s moon. In addition to its missions, JPL developed and manages NASA’s Deep Space Network, a worldwide system of antennas that communicates with interplanetary spacecraft.

JPL continues their world-leading innovation today, implementing programs in planetary exploration, Earth science, space-based astronomy and technology development while applying its capabilities to technical and scientific problems of national significance. JPL’s technology developed to enable new missions are now also applied on Earth to benefit our everyday lives.

In this episode, you will learn about:

– What Jordan’s role as the deputy director for engineering and science with NASA JPL involves

– Technologies used in space exploration that are now used in everyday life on earth

– What they discovered on Mars throughout the years

– How Artificial Intelligence will enhance space exploration technologies

– Upcoming projects, such as Mars 2020 Rover and the Mars helicopter Leonardo

– The Mindset required to work in NASA and the importance of feedback
