AI tool helps astronomers identify galaxy clusters quickly

  1. Researchers have developed an artificial intelligence powered tool called as “Deep-CEE” to identify galaxy clusters quickly.
  2. Galaxy clusters are some of the most massive structures in the cosmos but despite being millions of light years across,they can still be hard to spot.
  3. Deep-CEE stands for Deep Learning for Galaxy Cluster Extraction and Evaluation.
  4. This Artificial Intelligence-powered tool has been trained to look at colour images and identify galaxy clusters quickly.
  5. It is a state-of-the-art model based on neural networks which are designed to mimic the way a human brain learns to recognise objects by activating specific neurons when visualizing distinctive patterns and colours.
  6. Artificial Intelligence is a way of making a computer computer controlled robot or software perform human-like tasks.It refers to the ability of machines to perform cognitive tasks like thinking,perceiving, learning, problem solving and decision making.
