NASA just announced a major teleconference Thursday and everyone following the space agency’s developments is excited. An official announcement on the NASA website said it is gearing up for a teleconference to reveal a major breakthrough made by the Kepler space telescope, which is currently hunting the universe for exoplanets.
The Friday release said the Kepler mission, NASA’s most prolific exoplanet finder in history, hit a major breakthrough with the help of artificial intelligence (AI).
The discovery used Google’s machine learning algorithms to possibly develop a new way of analyzing data from the Kepler spacecraft. Google’s machine learning approach to artificial intelligence is considered the world’s pioneering application in the field. The neural net-based service helps machines process information and extract their own findings from it, effectively learning from the result.
