Planetary scientists and artificial intelligence (AI) researchers at the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) developed a machine learning tool that is helping to discover new craters on Mars.
Fresh crater detection typically involves hours of studying low-resolution images of potential new craters captured by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter’s Context Camera; the new process scans images from the High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment.
The classifier can complete in about five seconds what would take a human 40 minutes to accomplish.
JPL’s Kiri Wagstaff said. “This paves the way for an exciting symbiosis of human and AI ‘investigators’ working together to accelerate scientific discovery.”
