The discovery of exoplanets has fundamentally transformed our understanding of planets, solar systems and our place in the galaxy. With the vast amount of these planets discovered in recent years, characterising them is rapidly becoming a big data problem. As a solution, machine learning techniques that mimic human recognition and dreaming processes are being deployed in the search for habitable worlds beyond our solar system. We spoke to Ingo Waldmann, Senior Research Scientist at UCL, to learn more.
