The project award 15-47880, titled "INSPIRE: Teaming Citizen Science with Machine Learning to Deepen LIGO's View of the Cosmos". The project, joint with Northwestern University, Cal State Fullerton and the Adler Planetarium, will develop a novel citizen science project to classify glitches from the LIGO gravitational wave detector.
