[Podcast] Starts with a Bang:  Machine Learning in Astronomy

When you think about how astronomy works, you probably think about observers pointing telescopes at objects, collecting data about their properties, and then analyzing that data to determine what those objects are truly like, and to infer what they can teach or show us about the Universe. But that’s a rather old-fashioned way of doing things: one that’s contingent on there being enough astronomers to examine all of that data manually. What do we do in this new era of big data in astronomy, where there aren’t enough astronomers on Earth to even look at all of the data by hand?
