AI to monitor the health of astronauts, patients and remote workers

Tech & Sec Weekly


We speak with Darin Lovett, Executive Director of the iLAuNCH Trailblazer. The Innovative Launch, Automation, Novel Materials, Communications and Hypersonics (iLAuNCH) Trailblazer is a $180 million program building Australia’s enduring space capability through the commercialisation of projects, a fast-track accelerator, and skills development to build the workforce of the future.

Australia is already a world leader in delivering medical care to remote regions. This iLAuNCH Trailblazer project will build on this expertise, transferring the capability to predict and monitor physiological changes to human spaceflight.

Monitoring the health of humans hundreds of kilometres above the Earth and in the infinite space beyond is a major challenge in the complex microgravitational environment of space. Australia’s own population, dispersed across a vast geographic landscape, offers a similar challenge to health professionals.

The ability to access real time data that could aid in precise diagnosis, predictive assessment, and, consequent treatments during human spaceflight could in turn save lives for those operating in isolated areas such as mining, defence, or those living in remote environments on Earth.
Australia is already a world leader in delivering medical care to remote regions.

This project will not only be useful for spaceborne activities, it will bring direct and palpable benefits to Australians on the ground, as there is a huge opportunity to enhance health equity and conditions of remote patients and workers by providing them with real-time assessment and predictive health monitoring, with the potential for notification in case of a catastrophic health event. The combination of AI and advanced computing architectures, along with an understanding of measurements and their relation to human health, is fundamentally useful to all human beings and may be integrated into wearable products of the future.
