SciOps 2022: Artificial Intelligence for Science and Operations in Astronomy

Published: 20 Dec 2021

The next Science Operations workshop, SciOps 2022, will be dedicated to Artificial Intelligence (AI) for science and operations in Astronomy and will take place on 16-22 May 2022 at the ESO Headquarters in Garching bei München. Building on the success of the previous series of similar events, this ESO/ESA workshop aims to facilitate the exchange of current developments and applications of AI-enabled technologies in science operations for space- and ground-based astronomical facilities.

Technologies associated with AI, machine learning, data science, deep learning, and neural networks  are already embedded in our daily lives. Also astronomical research is deeply impacted by the advances of AI technologies. The large amount and complexity of data produced by modern astronomical facilities require AI-based technologies to allow efficient processing, and novel, synoptical, analysis and discovery methods. They add value to both engineering, observatory operations and science, with the final goal to enhance data exploitation.
