Google AI and NASA tied up to discover the other exo planets

 NASA is formidable in taking a geo-spatial and exoplanet discoveries in every astronomic moves with their incomparable standards to the public . With the team of scientists and researchers working towards one communion to achieve their mission targets on stand for past , present and future. The tech giant Google is on hands with NASA team to integrate to unity to make it even quicker and more possible ways. When we think of AI these days , the computational probability is sharpening its traits in the field of astronomy too. If you are totally aware of Kepler 90i - exoplanet discovered by NASA is discovered by Kepler system . Now, Google AI is  taking steps even further to head direct the move to find out the other exo planets in Kepler mini solar system.

This hot and rocky planet was discovered by Kepler space observatory telescope with the help of Google's neural network algorithm  and light readings were captured very interestingly. Scientists believed from the observatory that Kepler 90i does have solar system like ours . The discovery came to limelight with the help of Ai and that Kepler is seemed to be a sun like star which is just 2545 light years from earth and it orbit its star once in 14.4 days. Neural network algorithms are efficient enough to locate the weakest signals and the data's will be collected in database for collection of repositories. Kepler's system is like smaller version of our solar system and for past four years , the team seems to be collected nearly 35,000  signals. 

Here Google AI's help is rendered with the proper training of data's as neurons with at least 15,000 plus signals as samples and that is been iterated with the value adjustment . With the human presence , automated tests been taken with the neural network back propagation algorithm training till the errors are minimized . As Kepler's signals are been collected by system , it is been tested and verified iteration-ally with so many tests to prove the authentic confirmation and seems to come out with 96% accuracy.

Earlier, Neural network were just trained to search inside the database and never been used for further developments. Recently, google team promised the team that they will come up with better ideological concepts that could help them out to curb out , which could not be easily identified by our eyes or with telescope alone. Kepler 90i is a promising one to the team and they also state this system just has more similarities to our solar system  and thus helped them to find out sixth planet in Kepler 80 orbiting system and is comparatively smaller .

   Senior Software engineer Shallue is in joint hands with Google AI team came up with an idea to establish the connection of data with neuron network to get trained and it paid well to the team . According to the research paper published in The Astronomical Journal, Kepler was in deep exploration of signal adjustments and the results shows the values of Kepler mission are deeply concentrated.  Google AI seems to be doing its task very well by exploring other exoplanets by teaming with NASA to achieve great results for future exploration. Though neural network has to be trained a lot to understand the signal patterns more accurately , it does its task very minutely. They also made Reddit AMA section recently.  For better understanding, please check out the video below
