На сайте TopCoder размещён новый конкурс NASA Asteroid Grand Challenge Series. Задача конкурса — помочь в решении проблемы астероидов, которые могут врезаться в Землю и уничтожить человеческую расу. Конкретно, от программистов требуется разработать новые алгоритмы распознавания астероидов на изображениях с земных телескопов.

Конкурс НАСА начался 17 марта. Проект запущен совместно с частной компанией Planetary Resources, которая собирается добывать полезные ископаемые с астероидов.

Программа-победитель должна улучшить точность распознавания и уменьшить количество ложных срабатываний, а также эффективно работать на компьютерах под всеми операционными системами. Хотя в условиях конкурса этого не сказано, но вполне возможно, что предпочтение будет отдано проектам распределённых вычислений, благо у НАСА уже есть опыт успешных проектов краудсорсинга. Так, в прошлом году НАСА предлагало астрономам-любителям изучать скопления звёзд на фотографиях, сделанных с телескопа Хаббл.
