Streaming Ptychographic Experiments

Real-time ptychographic data streaming in a production environment began nearly a decade ago as a Berkeley Lab LDRD proposal—now it's a reality. And it's already changing the way scientists run Advanced Light Source experiments.

    Berkeley Researchers Use Machine Learning to Search Science Data

    June 18, 2018: Science Search, a web-based search engine for scientific data is currently being developed by a team of researchers in Berkeley Lab's CRD and NERSC. The team is also developing innovative machine learning tools to pull contextual information from scientific datasets and automatically generate metadata tags for each file. As a proof-of-concept, the team is working with staff at the Molecular Foundry, to demonstrate the concepts of Science Search on the images captured by the facility's instruments. Read More »
