Airbus and NASA Are Sending A Robot Head To The International Space Station

       I cover a lot of interesting new technology for use in space, but I have to admit that the device I am blogging about today looks and sounds like something out of a sci-fi comedy. Airbus and IBM are collaborating on what is being called CIMON which stands for Crew Interactive MObile CompanioN. It is a floating robot about the size of a medicine ball which is equipped with a IBM’s Watson AI system.
