A new program uses your USB webcam to scan the skies for UFOs, and when it spots something that is not a bird, airplane, or other known object, it will record the UFO for you to review later.
The program was created by ProjectCE: Connecting Evidence, and is simply called UFO Detector. It is available for free on their website.
According to the site, the program includes a “detection algorithm that looks for light emitting object which cannot be identified.”
In other words, it will be able to detect whether the object is something mundane or not. In order to help improve the algorithm, users can submit pictures of objects that UFO Detector suspects are UFOs that obviously are not. These “false-positives” will presumably then help the software not make the same mistake in the future.
