AI revolutionises gravitational lenses research

A gravitational lens is a distortion in spacetime. Until recently, it took a month for an expert team to analyse one of them. But researchers from the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University have shown that neural networks – a form of AI – can make the process 10 million times faster. Therefore, astrophysicists will receive accurate evaluations in a fraction of a second, automated and in compact form. The required technology will fit on devices as small as a smartphone chip.

Congratulations for their successful efforts to Y.D. Hezaveh, L. Perreault Levasseur and P.J. Marshall, Kavli from the Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology of Stanford University.
