The Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder

Postby CATO » Mon Jan 16, 2017 8:48 pm

The Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder finally hits the big-data highway

After months of running in test-mode, the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder telescope is now gathering data at an incredible rate to give us a new look at how our universe works

"Its antennas are now churning out 5.2 terabytes of data per second (about 15 per cent of the internet’s current data rate)"

A machine astronomer could help us find the unknowns in the universe

It’s almost impossible for any human to spot something unknown or unusual in the massive amount of data collected by our telescopes. So we’re teaching an intelligent machine to search the data for us.
