Artificial Intelligence Gives Us Glimpse Into Hearts Of ‘Messy Galaxies’

A new computer program could open the door for quicker analyses of galactic data. By Rebekah Marcarelli r.marcarelli@hngn.com | Oct 30, 2015 06:29 PM EDT A messy active galaxy. (Photo : ESA_NASA_AVO_Paolo Padovani) Artificial intelligence allowed researchers to peer deep into the hearts of distant galaxies. A researcher took inspiration from neural networks, and wrote a program that could find the most “messy” and turbulent galaxies out of a sample of thousands, the Australian National University reported. The Artificial Neural Networks are a group of computer programs inspired by the brain. They rely on an interconnected set of individual processors, similar to neurons. “I love artificial intelligence. It was actually a very simple program to write, once I [learned] how,” saud PhD student Elise Hampton, who is studying at the ANU…
