Large-scale imaging surveys have grown about 1000 times faster than the number of astronomers in the last 3 decades. Using Artificial Intelligence instead of astronomer's brains for interpretative tasks allows astronomers to keep up with the data. We give a progress report on using Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) to classify three classes of rare objects (galaxy mergers, strong gravitational lenses and asteroids) in the Kilo-Degree Survey (KiDS) and the Euclid Survey.
