Imagine the applications and implications of robotics and artificial intelligence in 2045

AI Planetary Colonization

Describe your idea

Given the vast distances, unimaginable risks and generational times, it will be centuries before humans get to another solar system. Why not have habitats and resources waiting for them when they arrive? Sending AI Planetary Colonization Systems (APCS) to all the nearby solar systems allows decades of time to gather resources and prepare space/asteroid habitats that will greatly reduce the eventual risk when humans are sent.

What makes this idea new or different?

Why must humans be the colonizers? We may never get to some or any of the neighboring solar systems but that doesn't mean we can't explore and benefit from them. Discovering life and/or new resources could revolutionize human existence without actually risking it.

What will be the implications of this idea?

A jumpstart on both discovery and preparation for space exploration. If we wait for human space colonization, it may never come.
