Machine learning to advance our understanding of the Universe

UniverseIn this topical collection we aim at bringing together a selection of scientific articles that deal with machine learning in astronomy, both in the broadest sense. Topics can include deep learning application on observational data, the use of neural networks to reduce the computational cost of depending tasks, or other areas in which machine learning is applied in order to advance our knowledge of the Universe.  For this topical collection we initiate a dedicated editorial board with expertise in machine learning as well as in astronomy and computer science.
