NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope was designed to determine the frequency of Earth-sized planets orbiting Sun-like stars, but these planets are on the very edge of the mission’s detection sensitivity. Accurately determining the occurrence rate of these planets will require automatically and accurately assessing the likelihood that individual candidates are indeed planets, even at low signal-to-noise ratios. We present a method for classifying potential planet signals using deep learning, a class of… 
Identifying Exoplanets with Deep Learning. II. Two New Super-Earths Uncovered by a Neural Network in K2 Data
TLDR
A convolutional neural network is trained, called AstroNet-K2, to predict whether a given possible exoplanet signal is really caused by an ex planetet or a false positive, and is a step towards automatically identifying new exoplanets in K2 data and learning howExoplanet populations depend on their galactic birthplace.
Estimating Planetary Mass with Deep Learning
While thousands of exoplanets have been confirmed, the known properties about individual discoveries remain sparse and depend on detection technique. To utilize more than a small section of the
HUNTING EXOPLANETS USING TRANSIT METHOD WITH CONVOLUTION NEURAL NETWORKS
Finding planets which pose as potentially habitable earth-like planets outside our solar system are called as exoplanets. In 1995, the first such exoplanet found orbiting around a star in 4-day
Exploiting Kepler’s Heritage: A Transfer Learning Approach for Identifying Exoplanets’ Transits in TESS Data
TLDR
This work presents a Machine Learning approach, based on Deep Neural Networks, to perform a binary classification of TESS light curves in terms of planet candidate and not-planet, and test the model on ExoFOP data.
Detecting Solar-like Oscillations in Red Giants with Deep Learning
Time-resolved photometry of tens of thousands of red giant stars from space missions like Kepler and K2 has created the need for automated asteroseismic analysis methods. The first and most
Deep Learning Approach to Finding Extra-solar Planets from TESS Light Curves
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) has measured the brightness of hundreds of thousands of stars since 2018, in the hope of detecting exoplanets. A periodic dip in star brightness may
Identifying Exoplanets with Deep Learning. III. Automated Triage and Vetting of TESS Candidates
TLDR
This work presents a deep learning model capable of performing triage and vetting on TESS candidates, modified from an existing neural network designed to automatically classify Kepler candidates, and is the first neural network to be trained and tested on real TESS data.
Rapid classification of TESS planet candidates with convolutional neural networks
Aims. Accurately and rapidly classifying exoplanet candidates from transit surveys is a goal of growing importance as the data rates from space-based survey missions increase. This is especially true
Autoregressive Planet Search: Application to the Kepler Mission
The 4 yr light curves of 156,717 stars observed with NASA’s Kepler mission are analyzed using the autoregressive planet search (ARPS) methodology described by Caceres et al. The three stages of
Nigraha: Machine-learning based pipeline to identify and evaluate planet candidates from TESS
TLDR
Nigraha uses a combination of transit finding, supervised machine learning, and detailed vetting to identify with high confidence a few planet candidates that were missed by prior searches, and identifies high signal to noise ratio shallow transits that may represent more Earth-like planets.
