Discovered 6,000 New Craters on the Moon | AI on The Moon


Scientists at the Centre for Planetary Sciences at University of Toronto Scarborough (Canada) have developed an AI-based lunar mapping technology that has identified over 6,000 new craters on the moon’s surface.

The team trained a neural network with a dataset of images covering the two-thirds explored part of the moon, and when it was utilized to study the unexplored regions of the moon, it ended up identifying thousands of new craters.

“It will allow scientists to find and measure craters down to scales smaller than ever, and on more solar system bodies than previously possible”, noted a team member behind the new AI-based mapping technology.
