Posted 10 July 2018 · Add Comment

It was announced today that the NASA Frontier Development Lab (FDL) will continue to use Kxís analytics capabilities to build on its space research success in this summerís mission.

Kx will be partnering with FDL and the SETI Institute on two key areas, including Space Weather and Exoplanet Identification.

Entering its third year, the Frontier Development Lab is the latest NASA sponsored activity to push the boundaries of state-of-the-art in computing – specifically applied artificial intelligence – to assist in solving knowledge gaps in space science and exploration relevant to NASA and humankind. The final results of FDL 2018 will be presented at Intel in Santa Clara on August 16th.

Kx’s ability to analyze large volumes of historic and streaming data in real time makes it ideally suited for AI and space applications. Kx is teaming up with the SETI Institute and other tech leaders, including Intel, Google, IBM and NVIDIA; private space partners include Lockheed Martin, KBRWyle and XPRIZE.

Brian Conlon, CEO of Kx, commented: “We are delighted to be continuing our relationship with the NASA FDL team and other great partners. The ultra-high performance capabilities of Kx technology make it the ideal platform to address space challenges, from Earth observation to space weather. This mission demonstrates the power and scalability of Kx technology.”

James Parr, FDL Director, commented: “Kx was early to build expertise in deriving insights from time-series data using AI. This has made them valuable partners for FDL style science applications – where rapid insight is a key value proposition.”

“FDL is an exciting and impactful example of the power of public-private partnership to deliver extraordinary results,” said Bill Diamond, President and CEO of the SETI Institute. “Kx brings their unique capabilities in advanced data analytics, delivering highly complementary synergies to the program’s team of interdisciplinary partners. It’s wonderful to have Kx on board again this year.”
