AI detects more Nazca lines hidden in the Peruvian desert.

Using artificial intelligence (AI), scientists discovered many new Nazca lines in the Peruvian desert.

Thousands of mysterious lines were discovered more than a decade ago.

According to IFLScience, a research team at IBM Japan and Yamagata University (Japan) used deep learning algorithms to scan through many aerial photographs of parts of the desert. Nazca.

The Nazca Desert, located on the coast of southern Peru, is famous for its ancient works of art carved into the ground.

The drawings include people, fish, birds, bugs, lizards, dogs, cats, monkeys, trees and flowers. Some images are more supernatural, including a two-faced humanoid monster and a giant two-headed man-eating snake.

Using deep learning, the scientists claim they can detect hidden patterns about 21 times faster than with the naked eye alone.

The model implements these new techniques by rapidly analyzing giant banks of visual data, and machine learning learns to understand which features are associated with the geographical lines of the Nazca desert.

Four Nazca lines are identified by "deep learning" techniques: a human figure, a pair of legs, a fish and a bird-like symbol.

Yamagata University explains the new research: "Deep learning is a machine learning method for building and training neural networks.

Computers learn features from large amounts of data and then make predictions or decisions. It performs highly in image recognition, speech, and natural language processing.

Through deep learning, the machine will automatically identify specific objects from images and their location, size and classification, Yamagata University added.

However, artificial intelligence (AI) also doesn't know why the Nazca lines were created. Hypotheses have been put forward, such as a tourist marker, astronomical significance or simply a work of art devoted to the gods in the heavens.
