Computer Geeks: Compete to Help NASA Explain Dark Energy

Wired - If you can teach computers to learn, NASA needs your help.

Cosmologists hope gamers, programmers, computer scientists and geeks-of-all-trades can help them identify evidence of dark matter. An international group of astronomers are hosting a competition, called GREAT10 (for GRavitational lEnsing Accuracy Testing), to come up with better ways to analyze distorted images of galaxies — the signatures of invisible dark matter lurking in the universe.
