A team from the University of Würzburg is developing an AI-based attitude control system that will allow satellites to maneuver autonomously. The new technology will be tested in space.

At the heart of the new attitude controller is an artificial intelligence that is being trained on the ground and will later be able to change the satellite’s attitude in orbit on its own. ...
