Artificial Intelligence Helps Accelerate Fusion Reaction Efficiency

Image of plasma disruption in experiment on JET, left, and disruption-free experiment on JET, right. Training the FRNN neural network to predict disruptions calls for assigning weights to the data flow along the connections between nodes. Data from new experiments is then put through the network, which predicts "disruption" or "non-disruption." The ultimate goal is at least 95 percent correct predictions of disruption events.

Computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon University say neural networks and supervised machine learning techniques can efficiently characterize cells that have been studied using single cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq). This finding could help researchers identify new cell subtypes and differentiate between healthy and diseased cells.

The Key to Unlocking HPC's Value?

News

Large-scale supercomputing is essential to solving complex questions about our world. But storage platforms essential for these advanced computer systems have been stuck in a rigid framework that required users to either choose between customization of features or high availability. Now, researchers have found a way to give high-performance computing data systems the flexibility to thrive with a framework called BespoKV, perhaps helping to one day achieve the HPC goal of performing at the exascale, or 1 billion billion calculations per second.
