"This system is a mini version of our solar system," said Andrew Vanderburg, NASA researcher.
"The majority of small planets are closer to the stars, while larger ones lined up over longer distances," he added.
NASA acknowledged, Google has a big hand in enabling the invention through deep learning techniques, a research method based on data learning using machines, which they develop.
This collaboration was first coined by Christopher Shallue, a technician from Google AI. He wondered if deep learning could be used to discover new planets.
Christopher then collaborated with Andrew to find out by making a network capable of finding exoplanets based on data collected by Kepler.
Since its launch in March 2009, Kepler has indeed been collecting huge amounts of data. This discovery was claimed only as a first step in the implementation of data they have.
"As we expected, there is an interesting discovery based on data that Kepler has achieved, just waiting for the most appropriate technology.This discovery means that our data is a valuable asset for future innovations," said Paul Hertz, Director of NASA's Astrophysics Division.
