Scientists from the University of Plymouth (UK) trained artificial intelligence to search for extraterrestrial life. This should help astronomers in their studies, report foreign resources.
Experts use artificial neural networks (ANN) to predict the likelihood of life on a particular planet. Based on the data received, scientists hope to choose more promising routes for future space missions.
The neural network is trained to classify planets into five different categories: Earth in our time, Earth at the beginning of its appearance, Mars, Venus or Titan (Saturn’s largest satellite).
Such a methodology will allow to quickly and effectively identify types of exoplanets based on data from terrestrial or space telescopes.
