Teaching Computers to Study the Stars
Speaker: Dr Ashley Spindler, University of Hertfordshire
The next generation of astronomy is upon us, with the JWST collecting data and the Vera Rubin Observatory imminent. Astronomers, therefore, are faced with a huge problem: data. With hundreds of petabytes of images to search through, AI is becoming the go to tool for tackling the big data challenges. From scanning the skies for new objects to classifying properties of distant galaxies, this talk will show you the how, and why, of AI in Astronomy.
