Human and artificial intelligence 'cyborg' discovers 40,000 galaxies

Tens of thousands of ring galaxies have been found in space thanks to a collaboration between humans and Zoobot, a novel artificial intelligence.

New research that demonstrates a collaborative effort between human and artificial intelligence is being prepared for presentation by researchers.

This week, Dr. Mike Walmsley from the University of Manchester and the Galaxy Zoo Collaboration will present the new results at the National Astronomy Meeting. 

Notably, the researchers refer to this hybrid strategy including AI and people as a "cyborg." According to rumours, Walmsley developed Zoobot

a novel AI programme that can recognise crucial signs that point to a chaotic event during a galaxy's existence, using a decade's worth of Galaxy Zoo observations.

Currently, volunteers from the human race search the Galaxy Zoo website for these markers, but given the expanse of the universe and the variety of its components,

 there is just too much work for them to handle.

Many humans must filter through thousands of images in order to create a clear connection between one chaotic event and the cosmos that caused it. In this situation, Zoobot is useful.

The new AI algorithm is able to precisely forecast what the human volunteers would say when the AI made a mistake in addition to being able to recognise these indicators

More than 40,000 uncommon ring-shaped galaxies have been found so far by humans and AI, which is six times the number that was previously known. 

In addition, ring galaxies are very old; in fact, it takes billions of years for the rings to form.
