NASA and Google use AI to discover that a galaxy has eight planets


Google’s neural network uses Kepler’s data training to identify satellites around a solar-like star Kepler-90 2545 light-years from Earth discovered the eighth planet . The number of planets Kepler-90 in the galaxy is the same as our solar system. The newly discovered kepler-90i is a hot rocky planet, close to the parent star, which is believed to be more than 800 degrees Fahrenheit, and only 14.4 days a week around the star. The findings, said Paul Hertz, director of NASA’s astrophysics department, suggest that Kepler’s collection of data remains a treasure trove, and that there are still exciting discoveries hidden among them waiting for new tools or techniques to discover them.
