Machine learning to extract gravitatonal wave transients

Identifying gravitational wave transients, where the waveform cannot be modelled, is complicated because detector data is full of noise transients.

Cutting-edge classification techniques will allow an improved method to distinguish signals from the noise background, increasing the likelihood of making the first detection of a poorly-modelled gravitational-wave transient signal from an event such as a supernova.
