This project is solving the Neuromorphic Studies of Asteroid Imagery challenge. Description
The heavy lift in understanding asteroids is in the classification. We took existing classifications and use machine learning to train algorithms to automatically classify larger data sets. We also enabled a front end submission tool so that citizen scientists and backyard astronomers can participate in the effort to understand asteroids. We want to build a platform where anyone can upload their images of the night sky and utilize the power of our classifier. They will then get feedback based on whether they've discovered a new object, found an existing object, or whether they should continue the hunt! Citizens and scientists alike can now become asteroid heroes. Heroes can compete by capturing and submitting more images and earning points for their discoveries and identifications. The classifier brings together the citizen scientist and the professional scientific community with the common goal of discovering, identifying, and learning more about asteroids.
