AI Unveils Two Alien Planet Signals Buried in Kepler Spacecraft Data

Kepler Spacecraft

 

The future of the AI, artificial-intelligence, algorithm concept for finding planets hidden in data sets looks bright. The algorithm developed by the University of Texas at Austin, in partnership with Google, can be used to probe the entire K2 data set of approximately 300,000 stars. The method is applicable to Kepler’s successor planet-hunting mission, TESS, which launched in April 2018.

NASA’s New “Fermi Guide” to Advanced Alien Life (Weekend Feature)

 

Alien Technology

 

This past December 2018 an exciting event took place: NASA researcher Silvano Colombano, who works for the agency’s Ames Research Center in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, published a white paper that Enrico Fermi would have given a rave review titled “New Assumptions to Guide SETI Research.” In short, the document was a fresh look at the Fermi Paradox that attempts to answer the eternal human question: Are we alone? Where is evidence of another advanced civilization?
