« Information field theory: from astronomical imaging to artificial intelligence »

Turning the raw data of an instrument into high-fidelity pictures of the Universe is a central theme in astronomy. Information field theory (IFT) describes probabilistic image reconstruction from incomplete and noisy data exploiting all available information. Astronomical applications of IFT are galactic tomography, gamma- and radio-astronomical imaging, and the analysis of cosmic microwave background data. This talk introduces into the basic ideas of IFT, highlights its astronomical applications, and explains its relation with contemporary artificial intelligence.
