The universe in the machine brain: Artificial Intelligence in Cosmology
Telescopes are collecting ever-increasing amounts of data about the Universe, enabling a better understanding of the most fundamental properties of our cosmos, its constituents and physical laws. The requirements of analyses used in this process differ significantly from traditional artificial intelligence use cases. The difficulty in observational cosmology lies in reconstructing with great accuracy almost invisible signals from the observation of large sections of the Universe.
Professor Daniel Gruen, Chair of Astrophysics, Cosmology and Artificial Intelligence in the Faculty of Physics at LMU, will use his AI Lecture to explain the importance of special architectures and training methods that already support cutting-edge cosmological measurements in key ways today. In addition, the astrophysicist will offer an outlook on the use of so-called generative models, which enable the machine to “learn” from the data available what the elusive structures of the Universe look like in reality.

The event will take place online via Zoom. Registration is requested in advance. The registration link will be published approximately 14 days before the beginning of the event. This and further information on the lecture series is available at lmu.de/ki-lectures.
