How one woman is using machine learning to help NASA track asteroids
With help from Google
Earth is surrounded by thousands of asteroids and comets, classified as Near Earth Objects (NEOs).
When NASA issued a challenge to use machine learning to help them track NEOs, Gema Parreño got to work.
Using TensorFlow, Google’s open-source machine learning platform, Gema created a program called Deep Asteroid.
Deep Asteroid helps scientists with asteroid tracking and classification.
With the help of Deep Asteroid, we are learning more about our universe and about asteroid behavior.
The good news? An asteroid is very unlikely to hit Earth, so we’re safe.
For now. 👏
