September 23, 2014: Complex oxides have long tantalized the materials science community for their promise in next-generation energy and information technologies. Complex oxide crystals combine oxygen atoms with assorted metals to produce… Read More »
- Extreme Data Science We develop tools and technologies and provide the critical networking and computer resources that help scientists turn enormous, widely shared, and complex data sets into discoveries.
- Energy Efficient Computing More science per Watt. That's the guiding principle as we rearchitect every aspect of scientific computing—from hardware and software, to algorithms, networking and data center operations.
- Science Engagement Engaging scientists in a holistic, team-based approach—from theory, observations and experiments to simulation and data analysis—is a grand challenge and goal of Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab.
September 19, 2014: Seventeen DOE national labs pooled their expertise and accomplishments to stage National Lab Day in the Rayburn Senate Office Building on Tuesday, Sept. 16. The event, which focused on the labs as a system rather than highlighting individual labs. drew 15 members of Congress and more than 100 staff members. Read More »
Adapting Materials Sciences Algorithms for Cancer Screening Leads to Award for Berkeley Lab Researcher
September 15, 2014: An automated method to extract the boundaries of individual cytoplasm and nucleus from overlapping cervical cell images, developed by Berkeley Lab's Daniela Ushizima and Brazilian collaborators, won first place at an IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI 2014) competition. The tool included pattern recognition algorithms developed by DOE's CAMERA to characterize new materials. Read More »
