Is There Life on Mars? Artificial Intelligence Could Help Uncover Alien Life on Mars and Beyond

Posted by in categories: alien life, robotics/AI

Summary: Scientists have developed a way to use artificial intelligence (AI) to find signs of life on other planets. They combined statistical ecology and machine learning to map the patterns and rules of how life survives in harsh environments on Earth, and then trained the AI to recognize those same patterns and rules in data from other planets. This method can help guide rovers and other exploration missions to places with the highest probability of containing life.

Wouldn’t finding life on other worlds be easier if we knew exactly where to look? Researchers have limited opportunities to collect samples on Mars or elsewhere or access remote sensing instruments when hunting for life beyond Earth.
