Seeking the true shape of the universe.

Japanese astronomers applied a new artificial intelligence technique to data from Japans Subaru Telescope, and found the mass distribution derived from using this method is consistent with currently accepted models of the universe.

Japanese astronomers have developed a new artificial intelligence (AI) technique to remove noise in astronomical data due to random variations in galaxy shapes. After extensive training and testing on large mock data created by supercomputer simulations, they then applied this new tool to actual data from Japan's Subaru Telescope and found that the mass distribution derived from using this method is consistent with the currently accepted models of the Universe. This is a powerful new tool for analyzing big data from current and planned astronomy surveys.
