Help us improve RFI removal and scoring

10 Jun 2017 | SciTech

The SETI@home back end is getting closer to completion. Our algorithms for removing RFI and finding repeated signals work fairly well. We can inject "birdies" (synthetic signals) to measure how well they're working. We've developed tools for browsing, drilling down, and visualizing signals and candidates. At this point we need to manually scan lots of results, looking for cases where our algorithms don't seem to be working perfectly. If you like, you can help us with this. read more »
