VandyGRAF hosting NASA astrophysicist Mohammad Safarzadeh to discuss AI applications to gravity waves

Posted by on Wednesday, February 15, 2023 in Newsletter.

Artificial Intelligence has become an indispensable tool in the field of gravitational wave research, helping scientists to make new discoveries and advancing our understanding of the universe.

Researchers are now able to analyze vast amounts of data from gravitational wave detectors, such as LIGO and Virgo, with much greater efficiency and accuracy. AI algorithms can quickly identify and filter out noise signals from the data. This has significantly sped up the process of discovering and confirming new gravitational wave events.

The Vanderbilt Initiative for Gravity, Waves, and Fluids is hosting astrophysicist Mohammead Safarzadeh tomorrow to discuss black hole puzzles in LIGO, LISA as well as AI applications to gravitational waves.

Dr. Safarzadeh’s seminar is set for Thursday, Feb. 16, at 1:00 p.m. in Stevenson Center room 6333.
