This issue of our magazine presents different applications of artificial intelligence to astrophysics. During the last decades the volume and quality of astrophysical data has grown substantially. Such a growth results from the use of both ground-based and space telescopes, such as Gemini telescopes, Kepler satellite, Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), Very Large Telescope (VLT), Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), among many others, which provide data for thousands or even millions of astrophysical objects. This large amount of high-quality data makes astrophysics a promising research area for the use of artificial intelligence techniques.

Considering that, the São Paulo Astronomy Network (SPAnet) organized the second Workshop on Artificial Intelligence in Astronomy. This year the event was sponsored and hosted by Instituto Mauá de Tecnologia (IMT) in São Caetano do Sul/São Paulo, Brazil. The workshop gathered researchers from different areas, such as solar, extragalactic and exoplanet astrophysics, who presented the results of their work, focused on galaxy classifications, analysis of solar flares, exoplanet detections, etc. Here we present the highlights of this workshop. Dear reader, we wish you enjoy this special issue.
