Recently, a team of researchers led by David Armstrong at the University of Warwick created a AI breakthrough.
The team trained a machine-learning algorithm to identify planets outside our solar system called "exoplanets." The algorithm quickly discovered 50 potential planets.
"Our models can validate thousands of unseen candidates in seconds," the study's authors wrote in the abstract to their paper.
Due to the massive size of many astronomical data sets, this method of statistical analysis is a major breakthrough. This new approach changes everything.
Processing large amounts of data to make statistically valid predictions is something where AI surpasses human capability.
