Kavli Update: Artificial Intelligence Analyzes Gravitational Lenses 10 Million Times Faster

Recent SFAA lecturers Drs. Yashar Hezaveh and Phil Marshal, both scientists at the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology (KIPAC) at Stanford, are members of a team that has made a remarkable discovery:

From the SLAC website: “Researchers from the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University have for the first time shown that neural networks – a form of artificial intelligence – can accurately analyze the complex distortions in spacetime known as gravitational lenses 10 million times faster than traditional methods.”
