Mavericks Lab - Summer Research Project

Status Report From: NASA Astrobiology Institute
Posted: Friday, April 8, 2016

Application Deadline: April 24, 2016
Location: Mountain View, CA, USA

The SETI Institute has partnered with NASA HQ, NVIDIA and the Asteroid Grand Challenge for a summer research project aimed at pairing young planetary scientists with early-career machine learning software developers to “hack” various datasets pertaining to the tracking and cataloging of Near Earth Objects. The idea is to see what can be gleaned from such datasets by applying some of the latest developments in machine learning to analyze the data in new and innovative ways.

SETI is looking for more applicants to the project from the planetary science community, where the target is PhD candidates or postdocs. The project will run for ~ 6 weeks this summer, and will be hosted at the SETI Institute. Participants will be housed at dormitories at NASA Ames.
