A role for neural networks in the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence
Taylor, Douglas, Towsey, Michael W., Finn, Gerard D., & Diederich, Joachim (1999) A role for neural networks in the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence. In 6th International Bioastronomy Meeting, August 2-6, 1999, Kohala Coast, Hawaii.
The search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) is an attempt to discover extraterrestrial intelligence by searching the microwave and optical regions of the electromagnetic spectrum for signals with a non-natural extraterrestrial signature. This is a complex, multi-dimensional problem with the probability of success dependent on the extent to which the dimensions of the search space are explored. In this paper we propose a neural network method to replace the standard signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) method used by project SERENDIP. Using simulated data we demonstrate that our method offers a modest improvement over the standard (SNR) method.
