Can Strongly Lensed Type Ia Supernovae Resolve One of Cosmology’s Biggest Controversies?

March 1, 2018

Using the SciDAC developed SEDONA code and NERSC supercomputers, astrophysicists at Berkeley Lab and the University of Portsmouth discovered how to control the effects of "microlensing." Armed with this knowledge they believe they will be able to find 1000 strongly lensed Type Ia supernovae in real-time from LSST data--that's 20 times more than previous expectations. Read More »

Interested Staff Invited to Apply to Attend 5-Day Machine Learning Hackathon

March 1, 2018

Staff in the lab's Computing Sciences and Biosciences areas are invited to participate in a weeklong workshop focusing on machine learning in data science. The goal of the workshop, to be held April 2-6, is to build bridges between Computing Sciences and Biosciences through a common foundation in statistical computing.   The course is open to all staff in Biosciences and Computing Sciences, but perquisite training in basic Python, basic linear algebra and basic to intermediate statistics is… Read More »
