    Artificial intelligence sharpens the view into space
    In their search for distant galaxies, rapidly rotating neutron stars and black holes, radio astronomers are collecting an ever-increasing amount of data. In future, this flood of data is to be analysed with the help of artificial intelligence. To this end, eight institutions in North Rhine-Westphalia have joined forces under the leadership of the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy (MPIfR) to form the "NRW Cluster for Data-Intensive Radio Astronomy: Big Bang to Big Data". In addition to the MPIfR, the University of Bonn and the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences are involved in the project. The state is funding the project with three million euros. ...
