Krittika will speak about her work at NASA FDL in which she examined how AI can be used to support medical care in space. Future NASA deep space missions will require advanced medical capabilities, including continuous monitoring of astronaut vital signs to ensure optimal crew health. She will discuss how biosensor data collected from NASA analog missions can be used to train AI models to simulate various medical conditions that might affect astronauts. She will also discuss the future of AI and space medicine.
