Complementary Bayesian and mAchine Learning Toolbox (CoBALT)

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

CoBALT seeks to develop a strategic partnership with Japan for the PRIME telescope in South Africa and the MOA II telescope in New Zealand for the purpose of advancing technologies for space application.  Specifically, CoBALT will develop a new approach to the automatic detection and characterization of gravitational microlensing events using machine learning and Bayesian modeling.  This technique will permit rapid identification of promising planetary events for follow-up by ground and space-based observatories and is broadly useful for any time-variable phenomena.
