ALCF supercomputers drive scientific discoveries in 2019

Deep learning for galaxy classification

With an ALCF Data Science Program award, researchers from the National Center for Supercomputing Applications and Argonne are using deep learning to develop a highly accurate method for classifying hundreds of millions of unlabeled galaxies. This image is a snapshot from a visualization that shows the output of a deep neural network during training as it is learning to classify galaxies as spiral or elliptical.
