For the first time, scientists might find out because of a machine-learning algorithm — one that pieces together image data collected from multiple radio telescopes scattered around the globe. If it works, artificial intelligence will have contributed to our first non-artist rendering of a captivating scientific mystery. No single telescope is up for the job, because none is big enough to produce a high-quality image. And we will never build one, said Katie Bouman, a graduate student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology working with Harvard researchers on what’s called the Event Horizon Telescope.
