50 New Planets Confirmed in Machine Learning First

Fifty potential planets have been confirmed by a new machine learning algorithm developed by University of Warwick scientists.

For the first time, astronomers have used a process based on machine learning, a form of artificial intelligence, to analyze a sample of potential planets and determine which ones are real and which are “fakes,” or false positives, calculating the probability of each candidate to be a true planet.
