Artificial intelligence finds 56 new gravitational lens candidates

The researchers published their method and 56 new gravitational lens candidates in the November issue of Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. Astronomers search for gravitational lenses because they help in the research of dark matter. The astronomers trained the neural network using millions of homemade images of gravitational lenses. Initially, the neural network found 761 gravitational lens candidates.
