As per scientists, it said that they had taken the help of artificial intelligence (AI) to discover 72 new fast radio burst which is from the mysterious source. This source is situated about three billion light years away from the Earth. The initiative has been seen with the advance of the search to find the signs of the intelligent life in the universe as per the researchers who are from the University of California, Berkely in the US.

The fast radio burst is said to be the bright pulses which are of radio emission mere milliseconds which is in the duration or thought to originate from the distant galaxies.  This new research which was published in the Astrophysical Journal. The theories which range from highly magnetized neutron stars that are blasted by the gas streams which is from a nearby supermassive black hole which in suggestions that burst the properties which are consistent with the signatures of the technology that is developed by an advanced civilization.

According to Andrew Siemion, who is from the University of California, Berkeley, said that the work is exciting which is not just because it will help us to understand but the dynamic behavior of all the fast radio bursts is in more detail which is also due to the promise that it shows to us for using the machine learning in order to detect the signals that are missed by the classical algorithms.

The researchers also seem to be applying for the successful machine-learning algorithm to find the new kinds of signals which could be coming from extraterrestrial civilizations. The fastest radio bursts are one-offs which are the source FRB 121102 that is unique in emitting the repeated bursts. The behavior has drawn much attention of many astronomers who all are hoping to pin down the cause of this.
