Artificial intelligence (AI) discovered more than 50 exoplanets. In the future, it is expected that machines will play a big role in helping humans in space exploration in the astronomy world.

Fox News reported on the 1st (local time) that researchers at the University of Warwick in the UK have discovered 50 additional exoplanets by applying AI technology based on old data from NASA. The results of this study were published in a monthly report published by the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS).

The researchers developed the algorithm data from NASA's Kepler Space Telescope, which stopped working in 2018. This AI is trained to detect real external behaviors and false and positive signs at a faster rate than conventional methods. After repeated training, it now “knows” automation and improvement.

Professor David Armstrong, who conducted the research, said, “The algorithm data  we developed can detect several objects in space and then determine whether or not a planet is judged. said

This isn't the first time NASA has trained an algorithm data  to find missing data. In February, a Dutch astronomy research team discovered 11 "potentially dangerous objects" using AI. However, Professor Armstrong emphasized, "There has never been a case of using machine learning technology as seriously as our research team so far."

The 50 exoplanets discovered by AI vary in size and scope. Some are as big as Neptune while others are smaller than Earth. Orbits vary in length, some taking as long as 200 days, while others orbiting the star in one day.

"About 30% of the planets discovered so far have only been tested in one way," Armstrong said. "This is not a desirable model." In the field of space science, it is essential to graft and utilize advanced technologies more and more. Armstrong hopes the algorithm data  will also be used to analyze NASA's TESS and PLATO probes.

Meanwhile, in 2018, NASA's SpaceX rocket launched the rover Tess, which succeeded the Kepler telescope. Tess focused on finding a 'human habitable planet' with a similar environment to Earth. Since then, a total of 4,000 exoplanets have been discovered, and about 50 of them have been classified as 'potentially habitable planets'.
