Project Description

This project will connect some of the world’s largest and most detailed extreme-scale cosmological simulations with large-scale data obtained from the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, the most comprehensive observations of the visible sky. By implementing cutting-edge data-intensive and machine learning techniques, it will usher in a new era of cosmological inference targeted at scientific breakthroughs.
