Clues to Our Unknown Ancestors Are Hiding in Our Genome

Artificial intelligence is helping paleontologists and anthropologists reconstruct the complex patterns of interbreeding among archaic populations that led to the modern human race.

Could deep learning help paleontologists and geneticists hunt for ghosts?

When modern humans first migrated out of Africa 70,000 years ago, at least two related species, now extinct, were already waiting for them on the Eurasian landmass. These were the Neanderthals and Denisovans, archaic humans who interbred with those early moderns, leaving bits of their DNA behind today in the genomes of people of non-African descent.

But there have been growing hints of an even more convoluted and colorful ...
