Speaker's Night: What Happens When Galactic Evolution & Data Science Collide? (ONLINE)

Dr. Elaina Hyde
Dr. Elaina Hyde, Assistant Professor, Physics and Astronomy, York University
Wednesday, May 13, 2020 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

This talk will cover a short trip around our Milky Way Galaxy and a discussion of how data science can be used to detect faint and sparse objects such as the dwarf satellites and streams that helped form the galaxy we live in. The data science applications and algorithms used determine the accuracy with which we can make detections of these mysterious bodies and with the advent of greater cloud computing capability the sky is no longer the limit when it comes to programming or Astronomy.
