In this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast, Elena Cuoco of the European Gravitational Observatory (EGO) explains how multimessenger astronomy will benefit from artificial intelligence.

Multimessenger astronomy involves studying an object using a variety of different signals such as gravitational waves, light, neutrinos, X-rays and more. Cuoco, who is the EGO’s Head of Data Science explains how machine learning will help astronomers makes sense out of this deluge of information.
