Berkeley Lab “Minimalist Machine Learning” Algorithms Analyze Images from Very Little Data

February 20, 2018

Mathematicians at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have developed a new approach to machine learning aimed at experimental imaging data. Rather than relying on the tens or hundreds of thousands of images used by typical machine learning methods, this new approach “learns” much more quickly and requires far fewer images. Daniël Pelt and James Sethian of he Center for Advanced Mathematics for Energy Research Applications (CAMERA) turned the… Read More »

The Atomic Dynamics of a Rare Magneto-Electric Matter

February 14, 2018

By ricocheting neutrons off the atoms of yttrium manganite (YMnO3) heated to 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit, researchers have discovered the atomic mechanisms that give the unusual material its rare electromagnetic properties. Their work included large-scale quantum simulations run at NERSC. Read More »
