Frontier Development Lab Seeks Applicants for Summer 2018

Friday, March 9, 2018 - 08:34

NASA Frontier Development LabNASA's Frontier Development Lab (FDL) is an applied artificial intelligence research accelerator that pairs researchers from the space sciences with data scientists for an intense eight-week concentrated study to apply AI to challenges important to space exploration and humankind. FDL 2018 runs from 25 June to 17 August.

We are looking for doctorate or post-doc researchers interested in the following challenge areas:

  • Space Weather
  • Astrobiology
  • Space Resources

Additional challenges looking at orbital debris and exoplanets may be added, pending partner interest.

This year we are also running a challenge in partnership with the European Space Agency, which will run in parallel. FDL Europe's focus will be on Earth observation.

FDL is hosted by the SETI Institute and NASA's Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California; and ESA Esrin in Europe. Computing and AI advisory support is provided by IBM, Intel, Nvidia, Lockheed Martin, and Google.

Researchers will receive a stipend and are provided with accommodation for the duration.

Applications will be accepted until the closing date of 3 April, though we encourage you to apply sooner to ensure a place.
