As per updated news reports, NASA recently collaborated with mega search giant Google to introduce the spectacular history of America’s space story to people. This visual universe brings forth almost a century of space story and is developed mainly via machine learning.
The AI involved evaluated NASA’s century-old space story archives to develop a collection of a striking constellation. One browsing the archives can witness more than 150,000 images that are categorized under “Independence Day”, “Hubble”, “astronauts” and “Discovery”.
For any regular stargazer, this gallery is like an open museum that takes one down the memory lane and gives extensive insight on space study. Via this documenting system introduced by NASA, one can further understand the deeper intricacies of space exploration and even explore the intriguing Martian surface, that is brought to users via high-resolution images from NASA’s International Space Station.
This collaboration done by Google and NASA is based on Google’s selfie-matching app. This app would allow users to find out which historic piece of art they resemble. Based on a similar mechanism but undoubtedly grander, the collaboration is based on the initiative of Google that is Google Arts & Culture. This initiative is also known as “Once Upon a Try” enables Google to join forces with more than 100 global museums and science organizations, like CERN etc.
Working together, with these organizations, Google and NASA, is all set to develop a tool that will bring to people every nook and cranny of mankind’s space development. From highlighting scientific milestones achieved, to world interventions, and achievements in the field of science and space, everything will be available in the AI dominated gallery.
As part of this tool, there will also be an app that introduces augmented reality. Users will be able to jump on their phones or watch popular star Tilda Swinton walk you through a Big Bang Show. All in all, this interactive museum will change the way people perceive space and artificial reality.
