Is it true that they are already here? It is impossible to know. What is certain is that science is searching for a civilization of aliens confirming that we are not alone in the vast universe.
Artificial Intelligence, in addition to being used as tool that shows us Shakira at 60 years oldIt also has scientific purposes. One of them, as crazy as it sounds, is to detect signals that may come from aliens.
Technology and astronomy experts designed a system in which anyone can participate. You just need to watch a simple tutorial and then start digging into the exciting search for aliens.
The project has been running for months now. It may seem unbelievable, but eight signs look pretty suspicious; They could be from a neighboring civilization that we are completely unaware of.
Among all that the terrestrial observatories have captured, there is the possibility that some communication attempt from an extraterrestrial civilization has slipped through. There is no test to ensure it, but neither to rule it out.
So, this is why Artificial Intelligence has been asked to help and that is how this breakthrough was achieved. Of the eight signs, none says “Hello, we are the aliens.”
However, the Artificial Intelligence system has told the scientists who carried out this research: “Alert with these eight.”
According to the site review DWthe study was a collaboration between University of Toronto undergraduate Peter Ma, the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute, Breakthrough Listen, and other astronomy organizations.
The results of the work say that there is a very slight possibility that a method has been found to detect “technosignatures” that are not made by humans.
What about those signs? Do we find life outside? Not yet. But the system was able to scrutinize each piece of data quickly, yielding signals that warranted further observation. That means there’s a method that will potentially find alien signals, if they’re sending them to us.
“We are scaling this search effort to 1 million stars today with the MeerKAT telescope and beyond. We believe that work like this will help accelerate the rate at which we are able to make discoveries in our great effort to answer the question ‘Are we alone in the universe?’, said Peter Ma.
The curious thing about these signals, according to experts, is that they were narrow band and those related to natural phenomena are always broad band.
