A transient is an astronomical phenomenon that appears and disappears in a short time. The Square Kilometre Array (SKA), the world's largest radio telescope and currently under construction, will discover and help to understand these transients with unprecedented sensitivity. This work uses advanced image processing algorithms and machine learning techniques to improve the detection of celestial transients from signals buried within the noise. This will help the SKA telescope to cope with the big data challenges encountered in large-scale radio astronomical observations, efficiently.
