The AI device can apparently predict the stability of the orbits in a planetary system. This basically means that the device can learn if the planets will keep on orbiting their stars along the orbit or will they collide with each other.

As more and more people begin to use devices that support Artificial Intelligence more and more developments and research are being done on the technology.

A group of scientists has come up with an AI model called Stability of Planetary Orbital Configurations Klassifier or SPOCK.

The lead author of the study, Daniel Tamayo from Princeton University explained in a statement: "We called the model SPOCK — Stability of Planetary Orbital Configurations Klassifier — partly because the model determines whether systems will ‘live long and prosper’."

The device can apparently predict the stability of the orbits in a planetary system. This basically means that the device can learn if the planets will keep on orbiting their stars along the orbit or will they collide with each other.

Basically with this device, the researchers aspire to get a better understanding of how planets organise themselves around stars. This will also help in understanding the ways in which planets organise themselves to be in stable orbits for billions of years in a star’s life cycle.

Further, SPOCK can also determine the long-term stability of planetary configurations about 1,00,000 times faster.

If the team is to be believed then SPOCK reliably identifies fast instabilities in compact systems, which according to experts is the most important in trying to do stability constrained characterization.

Daniel also added, "We can’t categorically say This system will be OK, but that one will blow up soon.

The goal instead is, for a given system, to rule out all the unstable possibilities that would have already collided and couldn’t exist at the present day."
