Title: Challenges in Gravitational-Wave Astronomy

Gravitational radiation promises new knowledge about our world, but all
attempts to observe gravitational waves (GWs) have been unsuccessful.
There are many challenges to overcome in our quest to detect this
elusive form of energy. I will describe how multivariate classifier
techniques have been used to combat detector noise in searches for GWs
from cosmic strings with LIGO and Virgo, and how the search for binary
neutron star collisions has created new techniques for modelling
collision waveforms.

Rapid detection of GWs will allow GW antennas like KAGRA to join a
larger transient astronomy community and will provide exciting, new,
information about the Universe. I will describe the analysis
techniques used to achieve the extreme performance required to search
for GWs from neutron star collisions with tens of seconds of latency.
Finally, I will comment on some challenges that lay ahead for our
community, and what might be done to address them.
