In a series of Twitter posts, he said three separate software libraries were involved in the creation of the black hole image and that while he wrote much of the code for one of those image pipelines, it would not have worked without Katie's contributions and input from others.
Just to clarify, this was the first image *ANYONE EVER MADE* of a black hole.
According to reports, she helped develop a computer program which helped in creating the image of the black hole. It was an algorithm that made it possible to create the first image ever of a black hole, and the algorithm was created by a a 29-year-old computer scientist Katie Bouman.
There, she led the project, assisted by a team from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and the MIT Haystack Observatory. Katie Bouman, the woman behind the first photo of a black hole, has also won the admiration of people around the world.More news: Underwater loudspeakers can help restore coral reef
One especially popular Twitter post showed a side-by-side picture of Bouman with hard drives of black hole image data next to another woman scientist: Margaret Hamilton. In addition, black holes by definition are supposed to be invisible - although they can give off a shadow whenthey interact with the material around them.
Bouman is a postdoctoral fellow working with the Event Horizon Telescope team that released the revolutionary photograph. However, there were still large gaps in the data that needed to be filled in.
"Well that makes sense as the data was captured across 8 different telescopes, so this is 1/8th of the whole setup", said ThomasTheSpider.
On Reddit and Twitter, memes quickly went viral contrasting Bouman with Chael, who - per the viral images - was actually responsible for "850,000 of the 900,000 lines of code that were written in the historic black-hole image algorithm!"More news: Samsung Launches Stable Android 10 Update for Galaxy S10
She spearheaded a testing process whereby multiple algorithms with "different assumptions built into them" attempted to recover a photo from the data.
The result? A groundbreaking image of a lopsided, ring-like structure that Albert Einstein predicted more than a century ago in his theory of general relativity. The image of the black hole presented on Wednesday was not from any one method, but all the images from different algorithms that were blurred together. "Just think about the photos you take with your camera phone - they have certain properties". I'm gonna take a wild guess that you're a f***ing idiot. And while that doesn't make her any more deserving of applause - Bouman emphasizes that the project was "a team effort" - it does make her a potential role model for young girls who lack examples compared to their male peers. Of course, senior scientists worked on the project, but the imaging portion was mostly led by junior researchers, such as graduate students and post docs.
While talking to another portal, she said, "No one of us could've done it alone".
"We've taken a number of steps to address this including surfacing more authoritative content across our site for people searching for news-related topics, beginning to reduce recommendations of borderline content and showing information panels with more sources where they can fact check information for themselves", a YouTube spokesperson told Business Insider.More news: Jurgen Klopp blames temperature for Adrian mistake for Brighton goal
"No one algorithm or person made this image", wrote Bouman, who in the fall will begin work as an assistant professor at the California Institute of Technology (Cal Tech).
