Description

Transit spectroscopy is the primary tool for inferring the physical parameters and the atmospheric chemical composition of extrasolar planets. I will discuss some recently proposed AI-inspired techniques for exoplanet parameter retrievals, including dimensional analysis, vector component analysis, exploratory data analysis, feature engineering, dimensionality reduction and manifold learning, clustering, anomaly detection and visualization. I will also draw analogies to the corresponding simulation and data analysis chain in high energy physics.
