Astrophotography in Urban Areas with Deep Learning

2019 INNO-vation Disruptive Challenger

As a result of the high light pollution seen in the night sky of Tokyo, it is difficult to see many of the billions of stars in the night sky. Utilizing machine learning, this technology is able to visualize a "beautiful night sky" with very little effort of the user. As a result, the threshold for entry into astrophotography can be significantly lowered, it would also be possible to implement this technology into existing technology such as smartphones and cameras. This research hopes to improve the accuracy of the DNN (Deep Neural Network) model itself.
