Request for Information: Application of Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning Tools to NASA Science

Solicitation: NNH20ZDA002L


FDL is an applied artificial intelligence (AI) research accelerator leveraging the newest developments in AI and Machine Learning (ML) technologies from academia and the private sector and applying them to challenges relevant to NASA’s goals in space and earth sciences. Teams of computer scientists and space and earth scientists work to solve problems important to NASA and humanity’s future within a given time frame. Each team is made up of four participants (two computer scientists and two domain scientists). The teams are mentored by subject matter experts (SMEs) in both science domains and AI/ML. FDL is a public-private partnership between NASA and the SETI Institute, commercial and academic institutions and other foreign and domestic agencies.
