Space telescope and artificial intelligence will be utilized to search for alien and aliens

The number of extrasolar planets discovered by the Kepler Space Telescope in 2016 is 1284, of which there are possibilities of existence of life forms in 9It is said. To confirm this "whether there is a possibility that life forms exist", astronomers take several days to several weeks for analysis, but when the James Webb Space Telescope was launched in 2018 , Since data exceeding the limit that human beings can handle can be sent, the utilization of artificial intelligence is planned.

The first discovery of extrasolar planets was in the early 1990s, and since then astronomers have tagged over 3,400. An analysis is being carried out to see if there is an extraterrestrial body somewhere in this place.

The James Webb Space Telescope scheduled to be launched in 2018Was developed as a successor to the currently operating Hubble Space Telescope. If the launch is done, the amount of information that can not be handled very manually will be sent.

Therefore, the artificial intelligence developed by University College London (UCL) is "Robotic Exoplanet Recognition (RobERt)". RobERt can scan deep space data much more quickly than humans. As artificial intelligence learns by trial and error as human brain, researchers said that he taught more than 85,000 patterns of spectrum.

Research chief Ingo Bartmann reports that the result was 99.7% recognition rate deliberately given incomplete data.

RobERt's search for a new planet in the area suitable for the existence of life (habitable zone) is still an entrance,Artificial intelligence "AlphaGo" beat the world's strongest playersI hope RobERt will give great results as well.
