AI aids in the search for alien existence in space.


  • AI is being crucial in the search for extraterrestrial life
  • New tools like AI are transforming the hunt for alien intelligence

There are between 10 and 50 billion potentially habitable worlds in our galaxy, making the search for alien life a daunting task. The Seti Institute is using artificial intelligence (AI) to process massive amounts of data and spot anomalies to help in their search. AI is being used to detect new types of radio signals, analyze telescope data, and distinguish between possible signals from aliens and interference. Additionally, AI is being used to analyze rock samples from Mars and Earth for signs of present or past life. While promising, any results generated by AI need validation before being confirmed as evidence of alien life.
