This is a talk held during the regular colloquium series (usually Tuesdays at 4pm).

From galaxies to faces: recognizing the implications of Artificial Intelligence in astronomy and society

Tuesday, March 9, 2021 - 11:00am
Dr. Brian Nord (Fermilab)

Artificial Intelligence (AI) refers to a set of techniques that rely primarily on the data itself for the construction of a quantitative model. AI has arguably been in development for three quarters of a century, but there has been a recent resurgence in research and application.

Period Change, Evolution and Atmospheres of Cepheids: new insights into fundamental standard candles

Tuesday, September 22, 2020 - 11:00am
Prof. Hilding Neilson (University of Toronto)

Classical Cepheids are one of the most important standard candles that anchor the distance ladder for cosmology. These stars are also powerful probes of massive star evolution thanks to their pulsation properties.

Stellar Interactions and Transients

Tuesday, October 13, 2020 - 11:00am
Prof. Silvia Toonen (University of Birmingham)

The advent and development of large-scale time domain surveys are revealing the existence of a large and diverse zoo of transients; common transients that can be used as tools to constrain GR or cosmological parameters, and rare & exotic transients that are observed for the first time.
