The Automatic Learning for the Rapid Classification of Events (ALeRCE) is a Chilean-led astronomical alert broker that currently ingests the public stream from the Zwicky Transient Facility, which contains hundreds of thousands of alerts per night, providing classifications and visualization for the astronomical objects detected. In this talk I describe the ALeRCE project and its different science cases, showing how it has enabled the follow-up and study of young supernovae and other transient objects. I highlight some of our discoveries, plus unforeseen benefits that we have found throughout our search. The advent of new surveys that target the Chilean dynamic sky, like the ones conducted by the Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System and soon by the Rubin Observatory, opens a promising future for continuing the collaborative exploration of these transients.
