Machine learning spots 8 potential technosignatures

Humans have five new leads in the search to find life beyond our solar system.

Scientists attempting to address the question, “Are we alone in the universe?” have used a new machine-learning technique to discover eight previously undetected “signals of interest” from around five nearby stars. The team applied an algorithm to previously studied data collected by the Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia as part of a campaign run by Breakthrough Listen, a privately funded initiative searching 1 million nearby stars, 100 nearby galaxies and the Milky Way‘s plane for signs of technologically advanced life.
