INSPIRE: Teaming Citizen Science with Machine Learning to Deepen LIGO's View of the Cosmos

This project (INSPIRE 15-47880) has developed a citizen science system--Gravity Spy ()--to support the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational wave Observatory (aLIGO), the most complicated experiment ever undertaken in gravitational physics. LIGO has opened up the window of gravitational wave observations on the Universe.
