New Tool for Gravitational Wave Detection

Scientists have developed new GPU-accelerated “deep learning” algorithms to more rapidly detect and characterize gravitational waves. The new technique “will enable astronomers to study gravitational waves using minimal computational resources, reducing time to discovery and increasing the scientific reach of gravitational wave astrophysics,” according to a statement from the National Center for Supercomputing Applications – NCSA – at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
