The (artificially) intelligent astronomer

Do you only know about artificial intelligence (AI) through creepy deep fakes and Skynet (yes, the Terminator)?

AI is changing the landscape of our society for both good and bad, from medicine to agriculture to social media. And, let us never forget, astronomy.

Astronomers have spent centuries looking at complex images of galaxies trying to unwind how they came together to what we see now. AI has the potential to transform our understanding of the history of galaxies and the Universe. If, that is, we can overcome our own biases.

Come sooth your existential dread at this month’s Astronomy on Tap at Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing by learning about some of the good uses of AI and Deep Learning with presenters Professor J. Xavier Prochaska and Doctor-to-be Joey Murphy who are pioneering cutting-edge efforts to use AI to drive new discoveries about our Universe.
