There's a good chance Google's machine-learning algorithm managed to find many more exoplanets hiding in Kepler's data, and the space telescope has already found more than 2,000. But it will nearly certainly relate to exoplanets - Earth-sized worlds that orbit around their own stars, and are our best hope of finding alien life.

Likely, NASA teamed up with Google to build an algorithm for finding more exoplanets inside that untouched Kepler data, and this Thursday's announcement will reveal the first results.

A live stream will take place at 1pm EST (6pm GMT) to announce the latest discovery, with a number of scientists in attendance to discuss the findings.

NASA is poised to make a significant announcement involving the search for Earth-like planets, in an effort that has been aided by artificial intelligence designed by Google.

"The discovery was made by researchers using machine learning from Google".

The telescope is presently on its second mission called "K2", and this time, it is more dedicated to discovering exoplanets on a limited basis.

In 2014, Kepler was set to another mission which included hunting for more exoplanets. It contemplated planets around stars categorized as bright M Dwarfs in the environs of the Sun. K2 is likewise "introducing new research opportunities to study young stars, supernovae and other cosmic phenomena", the press release stated. Attendees will include Paul Hertz, the director NASA's Astrophysics division in Washington D.C., as well as Christopher Shallue from Google.

Jessie Dotson, Kepler project scientist at NASA's Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California. However, the exact details of the press conference have not been revealed.
