Hod offered that robotics is a pathway of that kind, the ability for machines to learn by navigating the world. LeCun concurred, referencing the work of Sergey Levine, a U.C. Berkeley professor whose lab does a lot of work on what might be called self-supervised, or semi-supervised learning in robotics systems. The same kind of work is going on at Facebook, LeCun noted.

Even if humans do end up drinking Moon water instead of recycled pee, using astronaut urine for geopolymers may still not be the best choice. Instead, it might be better for growing food.

This means that it could be used in a closed-loop life support system where the water from urine is recycled and the urea is used as feedstock for vegetable fertilizer. Researchers at the German Aerospace Center have been successfully growing vegetables in human urine for years.
