"Frontiers in Multi-Messenger Astrophysics at the interface of Numerical Relativity and Deep Learning"
ABSTRACT:

Gravitational wave observations with the LIGO and Virgo detectors from a succession of mergers of black holes are a triumph of experimental and theoretical physics, and data science.  Similarly, the observation of two colliding neutron stars in gravitational waves and light heralds the era of Multi-Messenger Astrophysics. In this talk I outline a vision to drive innovation at the interface of gravitational wave astrophysics, large scale astronomical surveys, deep learning and large scale computing to address outstanding theoretical and data science challenges to realize the full potential of Multi-Messenger Astrophysics.
