A New Era of Transients and Cosmic Structure on the Radio Sky

Technology advances have opened a new era of radio observations. We are now monitoring the sky at millisecond cadence and discovering a vast catalog of new fast radio transients while simultaneously making deep maps of structure in the universe using hydrogen intensity mapping as a tracer. While these fields are still in their infancy, early results are rolling out, fuelling discovery and motivating the design for new instruments.

I will present an overview of the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME), describing the project's status and early results. I’ll conclude by introducing the next generation experiment, CHORD, now being designed.
