Abstract

Human exploration of deep space will involve missions of substantial distance and duration. To effectively mitigate health hazards, paradigm shifts in astronaut health systems are necessary to enable Earth-independent healthcare, rather than Earth-reliant. Here we present a summary of decadal recommendations from a workshop organized by NASA on artificial intelligence, machine learning and modelling applications that offer key solutions toward these space health challenges. The workshop recommended various biomonitoring approaches, biomarker science, spacecraft/habitat hardware, intelligent software and streamlined data management tools in need of development and integration to enable humanity to thrive in deep space. Participants recommended that these components culminate in a maximally automated, autonomous and intelligent Precision Space Health system, to monitor, aggregate and assess biomedical statuses.
