  • Machine learning could solve riddles of galaxy formation

    A new, faster modeling technique for galaxy formation has been developed by University of Illinois student Harshil Kamdar and professor Robert Brunner. The technique uses machine learning to cut down computing times from thousands of computing hours to mere minutes.
