● NASA needs AIT’s for manned and unmanned space exploration. ● Autonomous robots can fly on their own or help the astronauts. ● All our current technolgies are analyst-dependent. ● Extricating the analyst from software requires understanding the analyst. ● Understanding the analist means understanding the brain. Analyst-independent technolgies (AITs)
The brain The brain is a computer ● Cognition ● In host-guest systems: guest ● We learn ● We remember ● We know ● We decide ● Do we think? ● Do we reason? The brain is an organ ● Unconscious ● In host-guest systems: host ● Where is the unconscious? ● What does it do? ● Hermann von Helmholtz ● Sigmund Freud ● James Clerk Maxwell ● Carl Jung ● Douglas Hofstadter ● Pink Floyd ● David Eagleman ● Juan Roederer ● Jean Piaget ● Sergio AND I believe that cognition is a giant memory of behaviors, stored as a hierarchy of structures. Then, an unconscious mechanism that von Helmholtz called UI and I call EI generates new structures, and again stores them as behaviors in our cognition for us to use.
The Great Unsolved Automation Problems of Software Engineering (GUAPs) The automation of: ● Object generation (80’s) ● Refactoring (90’s) ● Integration (2000’s) ● Self-programming (2010’s) ● Parallel Programming ● Image Recognition ● Semantic Web ● Ontologies ● Robots ●... and counting. All these problems have exact mathematical solutions that can be found by emergent inference.

Plan and Conclusions ● EI should be developed in USA. ● NASA may develop EI. ● Step 1: independent verification. ● Step 2: development. ● Step 3: application in robotics. ● All current technolgies are analyst-dependent. ● Anayst-independent thecnologies are needed for space exploration, both manned or unmanned. ● EI provides the only way to extricate the analyst.
