AI program aids Aussie astronomers in analysing galaxies

A PhD student at the Australian National University created an artificial intelligence-based program that can look into the core of galaxies, the university announced in a statement . Elise Hampton, an astrophysics student at the University’s Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics, created the AI program to single out the most turbulent and messy galaxies. Hampton’s studies currently focus on galaxies with glowing centers powered by black holes that cause huge galactic winds. Galactic winds, Hampton believes, blow so much material out of the galaxies that it eventually “starve” itself to death. It can also trigger the formation of new stars. Hampton’s goal is to compare and contrast these processes and, ultimately, understand how galaxies live and die. AI on galactic analysis Before Hampton’s program, automated solutions had failed in…
