I don’t know about you, but I’d be hard-pressed to tell a good, natural looking picture of the universe without Google’s deep learning system.
In fact, its ability to tell us which objects are real is so impressive that it’s even being used in medical diagnosis.
But Google’s AI system isn’t limited to helping us to recognise real objects, it can also tell us the story of the cosmos.
In a paper published today in Science, researchers from the University of Southern California describe how the system can tell the story about the history of the Universe and help us understand how it formed and how it will evolve in the coming years.
And it’s only getting better.
The authors used the AI system to draw on the data of an existing dataset to create a 3D model of the Milky Way.
This 3D map shows how galaxies and the Milky way form.
The researchers used a model of how galaxies formed to create the 3D maps of the galaxy.
They then used these models to generate 3D images of stars, planets, and dark matter.
As you can see, the galaxy is actually a little fuzzy, so they’re actually using a very simple model of galaxies to make the 3d maps.
The models, called the M-theory, are not quite as accurate as the more detailed models they’ve developed for the models of the Big Bang and other galaxies, but the results are impressive nonetheless.
This is the first time that researchers have used the M model to produce a 3d model of a galaxy, says Christopher Wilson, a PhD candidate at USC and lead author of the paper.
But, he adds, this is only the beginning.
“This is a really exciting start.
We hope that we’ll be able to build more sophisticated models of these galaxies in the future.”
And the model’s limitations are the most obvious: The data is based on only one star system, but there are more stars than that in the universe, Wilson says.
But the researchers are now developing a 3-dimensional model of other galaxies that will include even more galaxies.
So they’re looking to expand the model beyond just the Milky “and to try to figure out what is going on at other places in the Universe,” he adds.
The M-Theory is a powerful tool that could be used to learn much more about the Universe in the years to come, Wilson adds.
But there are other exciting applications for the technology.
“It’s kind of like the super computer in a petri dish,” says lead author Paul Reiss of USC’s School of Computer Science.
“We want to see what it’s going to do in the real world, in the next few decades, to understand the evolution of the stars and how galaxies form.
If you can predict how galaxies are going to evolve, you can also learn about the universe in the long run.”
