Microsoft Uses Machine Learning To Construct The Perfect Sky

On any given night, 7 billion people might look into the sky and see things from a slightly different perspective. Or as artist Maja Petrić puts it, “we have one sky, but the experiences are infinite.” That’s why, working with machine learning researcher Nebojša Jojić in Microsoft Research’s Studio99, Petrić created The Skies Epitomized. It’s one world map of the night sky that encapsulates the way we all see it—subjectively from around the globe—through software. Technically, the map doesn’t have 7 billion views from across the globe. Instead, it features eight different climate regions, sort of like a weather map might. So it has the polar sky, the arid sky, and the tropical monsoon sky, interspersed across the continents. These individual skies are built from an aggregate of…
