Researchers Turn To AI To Find Ancient Galaxy Mergers

The collisions of the galaxies cause bright light to spread across the entire Universe as distant galaxies are continuously stirring up stars at immeasurable rates. Lately, the astronomers have found a new method to differentiate them. The telescopes have limited resolution and thus, cannot clearly see far-off things. The historic parts of the Universe are not clearly visible and this makes spotting of the far-away galaxies merging quite difficult.

The researchers have developed a new system that can help distinguish far-off galaxy mergers from the super-brightly shining distant galaxies that give rise to countless stars at a constant rate. The data published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society has clearly shown the benefit of AI in spotting galactic mergers in various parts of the Universe based on the tsunamis of stars on their fringes. The stars have shown to have their long tidal arms stretching out from the core of the galaxies and merging. The patterns become blurry as the light from the ancient Universe has to travel a long distance. Our earlier Universe had galaxies producing stars at higher rates, which is completely opposite to that of today. Thus, the doubt is that the super-bright galaxies present in the early Universe were the result of mergers or its own brightness.

The star-forming galaxies and galactic mergers may seem close and thus, the chances of researchers making fake images by blurring the image to show light is coming from distant galaxies are also high. The researchers could easily differentiate between the fake images and the actual early Universe galactic images using the AI. The mergers were used as the signatures for distinguishing galaxies in the early Universe. Both types of galaxies could be diversified using the trained machine learning algorithm. The Universe has most of its galaxies merging and our Milky Way is also expected to merge with its neighbor Andromeda. Similarly, Roscosmos, a Russian space agency has decided to use AI technology to build a humanoid robot that can be sent to the International Space Station. Skybot F-850 was, thus, launched into space on August 22 aboard the Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft and it is expected to return on September 7 after 2 Weeks of exploration.
