Data Science Seminar Series: Shiro Ikeda

on the November 14, 2019

15:30 to 17:00
The Data Science Seminar Series bring high profile researchers to Université Grenoble Alpes to show the increasing role of data science in modern research. It is open to all researchers of Université Grenoble Alpes. For the 1st seminar of this year, we will welcome Shiro Ikeda from The Institute of Statistical Mathematics (Tokyo, Japan).
Shiro Ikeda from The Institute of Statistical Mathematics (Tokyo, Japan) will give a talk on “Data science for the EHT blackhole shadow imaging”. The event will take place on Thursday 14 November at GIPSA-Lab building. The event will be followed by a coffee break.


Last April, the EHT (Event Horizon Telescope) collaboration released the first image of the M87 black hole shadow. EHT is a huge VLBI (very long baseline interferometer) and an inverse problem must be solved in
order to have an image. We have developed a new imaging method for EHT and it is one of the three methods which contributed to the released image. In this talk, I explain how the method has been developed and the final image was created.
