|Goal||Detect extraterrestrial signals from space.|
|Task||Classify earth signals vs extraterrestrial signals.|
SETILive is an exciting new project in which volunteers try to detect extraterrestrial signals from space.
The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) uses images from the Allen Telescope Array and powerful computer algorithms to search for these signals automatically. However, the computer algorithms have a hard time distinguishing between signals that might be extraterrestrial and those that are from earth. This is where you come in!
Researchers need your help to find interesting signals in all that noise. Eventually, they want to learn whatever tricks you use to do your classifications, so they can teach their computer algorithms to do the same thing.
