A multi-university team of researchers from Japan creates the world's fastest astrophysics simulator using an artificial intelligence (AI) system to predict the shape of the universe itself. The scientists hope that in doing so, they'll liberate the mysteries surrounding dark matter and dark energy.

Dubbed "Dark Emulator," the AI device parses massive troves of astrophysics data. The device makes use of the facts to build simulations of our universe. It taps into a big database complete of records gleaned from special telescopes that compare current data with what scientists anticipate based on theories surrounding the universe's origin.
