Scientists use artificial intelligence to find new galaxies

A PhD student at the Australian National University has developed an artificial intelligence network capable of analyzing distant galaxies. Researchers at the Australian National University have figured out how to use artificial intelligence to scan space for new galaxies. According to a university press release, the study, led by PhD student Elise Hamilton, showed how neural networks could be created to isolate the most turbulent and “messy” galaxies for study, offering insight into the long list of forces at play in the universe. Hampton, who is currently a student at the ANU Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics, said, “I love artificial intelligence. It was actually a very simple program to write, once I learned how. The program took eight minutes to analyze 300,000 data points from 1,188 galaxies. For…
